Using remote sensing data to build a nationwide forest inventory
Presented by Dr. Nan Pond, Chief Biometrics Officer, SilviaTerra
The talk will compare different types of remote sensing, such as radar, Lidar, and multispectral imagery, and cover ways that foresters can engage with this technology and products developed using it. Remote-sensing supported datasets are being used to inform new methods for quantifying fire risk, forest inventory, and unlock forest carbon for natural capital marketplaces. Dr. Pond will share the history and technology behind SilviaTerra's national Basemap dataset, built in collaboration with Microsoft's AI for Earth program, as well as discuss other similar high-resolution forest inventory data products.
SilviaTerra has recently announced a new marketplace for woodland owners of any size interested in selling forest carbon credits, and more information for landowners and foresters is available at https://www.silviaterra.com/ncapx/landowners SilviaTerra offered a webinar that might be of interest.
