Earth observation and analytics solutions for Forestry

Home / Your Industry / Forestry

Being a renewable resource, forest cover can be regenerated through sustainable management. Hence, with the help of remote sensing and GIS data, a forest manager can generate information of forest cover, types of forest present within the area of the study, human encroachment into forest land/protected areas, encroachment of desert-like conditions and so on. This information is critical in the development of forest management plans and in the process of decision making to ensure that effective policies have been put in place to control and govern the manner in which forest resources is utilised.
