Synergy Of Remote Sensing And GIS Techniques For Tropical Forest Monitoring And Protected Area Management
The current presentation shows how the new remote sensors and powerful computing tools allow nowadays to refine the thematic knowledge of ecosystems on the whole Congo Basin at a spatial detail never achieved before. Change detection algorithms give the possibility to locate the deforestation hot spots and to accurately measure the forest cover evolution at a regional scale. Remote sensing data combined with geographical information systems can also support the field projects linked to protected area management and land planning.
