A satellite image processing platform for high resolution forest assessment

The aim of FORSAT is to raise the current technological capacity of aerial imagery combined with airborne laser scanning for forest cover mapping applications to a stand-alone, satellite-based monitoring capacity. The project transfers the existing precise processing capabilities of airborne techniques to Very High Resolution (VHR) optical, stereographic satellite data, thereby providing a single source forest information solution. The platform enables high-resolution thematic mapping of forest areas along with canopy height detection, which will in turn allow for the derivation of forest volume.
