GIS and satellite imagery are essential in mapping natural resources, such as forestry, grasslands and coastal management for assessment and analysis. (Local) governments, state and private sectors often require accurate land cover and change. Ever changing conditions due to urban sprawl make this important for monitoring and future planning. We facilitate the identification and monitoring of forest encroachment through mapping with high-resolution aerial pictures. This dataset can be integrated in a geospatial database for efficient forest management and decision making. We can map changes in land use, for instance the conversion of forested area into bare soil. With this you can easily identify bare soil areas and accurately calculate the percentage of bare soil areas in a specific area or forest.

Deforestation represents a stand-replacement disturbance and a conversion of land use. We can quantify the forest cover change in support of deforestation and forest degradation mapping. We use a per-pixel change detection approach to precisely indicate the loss of trees and area. Tree count supports forest inventory, this helps to sustain conservational stability and document ecological biodiversity. Our Species Detection Tool allows us to identify and detect all the different tree species in a specific area. Now you can see species numbers and the total number of trees in one overview.
