Imagine, if you could keep an eye on your forest without visiting the area.
Forest monitor is a service which enables monitoring and analysis of forest areas anytime, anywhere. You know what is happening in your forest like location of illegal logging.
The service is based on satellite technology combined with machine learning and automatization. The service offers continuous analysis. Analysis process detects significant changes in the environment. Change detection results include information about type, time, strength and geometry of changed area. The results are provided as cloud service, WMS-layer or they can be downloaded.
Forest Monitor service includes:
Forest Monitor service can be used to produce customer specified analysis based on additional data sources such as field measurements.
Forest Monitor service can be used from anywhere with internet connection. The results of analysis are shown on the most recent interactive map. In addition, online service includes other layers, which support visualization and understanding of results. Information on online service is updated continuously.
Available layers and information are:
We develop our service all the time, therefore, we have on-going projects with ESA and we are part of the Finnish Government Spearhead Project.
Satellio won international ESA bidding, which aims to develop service to detect shrubs interfearing conifer forest growth in the borealis zone. The project with ESA concentrates on shrub mapping. At this point the first results are promising and the estimation is that the service could have positive financial and socio-economical impacts.
