Forest Health Analysis

Back to my forestry analysis Days,   much better sensing now. 

Real-Time, Interactive Monitoring of Forest Health

Technical University of Munich (Germany)

December 10, 2021

A data analysis and visualization tool developed by researchers at Germany's Technical University of Munich (TUM) uses satellite images to track the health of European forests. The interactive Forest Condition Monitor (FCM) also allows users to view and download data for specific countries and time ranges. Using remote sensing data, the open-access interactive platform can color-code the greenness of European forests based on deviations from long-term norms, helping to identify hotspots for forest die-back and decline. Said TUM's Anja Rammig, "The FCM data, complemented by additional ground-based studies and monitoring campaigns, could help to identify causes for variations in the greenness of tree canopies and thus to gain a better understanding of the eco-physiology of trees under stress in natural surroundings."
