ForestSAT 2014 is the 6th in a series of international conferences promoting scientifically based understanding of how spatial analysis technologies can help describe and monitor forested systems. ForestSAT 2014 will be held in the conference center located in the picturesque town of Riva del Garda on the north shore of Lake Garda, in the north east of Italy. Previous conferences were held in USA (2012), Spain (2010), France (2007), Sweden (2005), and Scotland (2002). Delegates typically represent research organizations, universities, agencies, and the private sector.
Overview & Themes
ForestSAT 2014 conference is aimed at promoting the integration of earth observation with other geo-spatial applications and traditional forest sciences. The conference covers all possible scientifically-based developments and applications of remote sensing and GIS tools for monitoring, mapping or modeling forest systems. Aiding a better understanding of their functioning, and supporting their inventory and sustainable management. Conference themes will include:
– Forest mapping and inventory
– Ecosystem modelling
– Proximal sensing
– Forest management and policy
– Unmanned aerial vehicle
– Data processing techniques
