Remote sensing and GIS application for monitoring forest management operations
Ratnayake, Ranitha (2004) Remote sensing and GIS application for monitoring forest management operations. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Satellite data potentially provide a useful tool for estimating forest cover and monitoring changes. Traditional forest surveying methods involve time consuming measurements of a large number of trees. Remotely sensed data may enable forest cover changes to be estimated very rapidly over large areas and with a minimum of ground data collection. At present the role of forest management in Britain is expanding, so that looking at forest cover changes is extremely useful for management purposes.
