Forests on post-agricultural land

The aim of this research topic is to identify forests occurring on post-agricultural land based on archival and current satellite data. Satellite data allow to reconstruct an image of Earth surface and monitor changes in land use and land cover categories during last 60 years. Noteworthy are satellite images of CORONA program, made in 1960-1972 by American reconnaissance missions, among others for area of Poland (declassified at the end of 1990s). In 1972 the first civilian satellite of Landsat series was launched into orbit, providing images in several spectral channels.

SAT4EST

The goal of the SAT4EST is to design and build non-state forest focused service dedicated to the local government administration in Poland. The proposed service promotes the use of various Copernicus data and products to the large community of end users at administrative level. Earth Observation based service provides a simple, intuitive and low cost tool in a form of a web-based application easy to use and expand for other dataset. It integrates EO based products, ancillary data and allows calculating statistics over a given area and generating simple reports.
