Forest Remote Sensing

In the Forest remote sensing field, we work with all sensors and sensor platforms that are of relevance to forestry and assessment of vegetation. Common sensors are digital cameras, laser scanners and imaging radar. Platforms include aircraft and satellites, but also photos from drones or from sensors that view the forest from the ground that might be stationary, or manually carried or carried by vehicles.

We work with

  • Research on remote sensing of forest and vegetation
  • Environmental monitoring and assessment, mostly national maps produced with the support of remote sensing and NFI data
  • Education in remote sensing and GIS
  • Support for SLU's GIS activities
