Luxemburg digital forest map inventory
ProGea Consulting, together with international partners, has done the forest inventory of Luxemburg. The goals of this project was to update the boundaries of forest borders, tree species, age, density. Project included also analyzes for the planned wood harvesting strategy. Most of the work was carried out by analysis of Remote Sensing data, including aerial ortho-images and Airborn Laser Scanning (ALS) data.
Project demonstrates the potential of Remote Sensing data analysis, shows how many information we can gather just from aerial images, without necessityof field works. It also shows how Remote Sensing affects forest management.
