The first satellite-based forest monitor for Germany was published today

Remote Sensing Solutions GmbH, together with the Naturwald Akademie, has published the first satellite-based forest monitor for Germany online. By analyzing a long Sentinel-2 time series, it was possible to map the development of the forests in the years 2016-2020. The maps and statistics illustrate how much coniferous and deciduous forest the individual federal states have lost in the past dry years. The range of geodata that we can offer forest owners, municipalities and ministries in this way will be further expanded in order to be able to provide comprehensive information on the state of the forest.
