Project: exploitation of VHR satellite imagery for updating the Flemish forest map

project duration
01-OCT-03 – 30-SEP-05
In order to test the forest conservation and extension policy, the first part of the research project focuses on the application of image segmentation techniques for forest mapping according to the definitions of the forest decree. The second part deals with forest parameter retrieval within homogeneous forested areas. This way, the effects of the measures taken in connection with sustainable forest management can be evaluated at long notice.
