Project details

Realization of the forest maps in scale 1:25.000 using remote sensing techniques and photo interpretation and field surveys GPS.

In the first instance we have been identified the keys of interpretation, derived from an expeditious analysis of the images, in some significant sample areas, with verification in field with ground surveying instruments.

The forested areas have been acquired for photo interpretation of satellite images, properly processed using vegetation indices (NDVI).

Each element has been acquired in accordance with the structural limits of the territory supplied by the aerophotogrammetric map (CTR), using a lot of ancillary data.

After these was create the forest geodatabase.

List of activities:

  • Manage satellite images (georeferencing, enhancement, indices calculation, …)
  • Creation of interpretative keys
  • Photointerpretation of forest border
  • Classification of the main species in each forest polygon
  • Control and validation: GIS test and reliefs in ground
