Engineering and technology

Technology is the collection of techniques, skills, methods and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, etc. or it can be embedded in machines, computers, devices and factories, which can be operated by individuals without detailed knowledge of the workings of such things.This includes e.g. civil engineering, mechanical engineering,environmental engineering and environmental biotechnology.

Collaborate with us

An important part of our work is to maintain good relations with both the international scientific community in the field, and with a wide range of Swedish stakeholders, such as enterprises,

Landscape visualization

Visualization is a tool used to illustrate the future landscape given different scenarios and also to show historical events and changes in landscape. Building a visualized landscape requires a


Radar using satellites as a platform can be used for mapping forests across large areas. The technology is similar to lidar (laser scanning) using electromagnetic waves but is less affected by e.g.

Optical satellite images

Satellites with optical sensors generate images of the Earth over relatively large areas and are useful in the production of vegetation maps or to estimate specific vegetation parameters. The sensors

Digital photogrammetry

Digital Photogrammetry is the creation of three dimensional (3D) point cloud data by applying image matching to overlapping digital images. The meaning of photogrammetry is to "measure with light",

Laser scanning

Laser scanning measures positions on objects using light pulses. Measurement coordinates are used to calculate forest area statistics and estimate different forest parameters. In airborne laser

More about Forest Remote Sensing

In Forest Remote Sensing, we develop and validate remote sensing methods that can be used in forest management planning and terrestrial environmental analysis/assessment. Remote sensing data are
