Field-map survey in Gardesana

During June 2014, ERSAF organized field survey in the new test-site across the Lombardia Alps. With the support of the NewFOR italian partners, several data were collected in order to process them in the same way of the benchmarking.

ERSAF – new LiDAR data

During May 2014, PP4-ERSAF commissioned LiDAR flight in the area of Gardesana Occidentale Regional Forest. This survey add an additional test site to the alpine dataset, with different forest type: broadleaved forest (maple, ash, beech, hornbeam).

Practitioner Workshop in Montafon, Austria (April 15th, 2014)

Nine forest managers or practitioners participated in the workshop in Montafon (Austria), which aimed at validating the forest maps derived from airborne laser-scanning (ALS) data using object based image analysis (OBIA) in the field. The forest maps were assessed in respect to their information content, usability in the field and as planning basis for forest …

AgroParisTech student projects in Vercors test site.

Two student groups from AgroParisTech made their field project on the Vercors test area – October 2013. The subjects were: Forest typology in public forests from remote sensing and field data. Private forests in the Claret Forest – under-harvesting and Lidar resource estimation. Both groups benefited from data and results produced in the framework of …
