ENTERING A NEW ERA IN FOREST OBSERVATION AND ANALYSIS
College Park, Maryland, USA
The biennial ForestSAT (Association for Forest Spatial Analysis Technologies) conference has emerged as the leading international gathering of researchers, practitioners and stakeholders interested in the development and use of established and emerging technologies for the observation and analysis of forests. ForestSAT2018 marks the eighth meeting of this conference which provides a forum for discovery and discussion of the latest research in remote sensing and geomatics for forestry applications.
The ongoing and expected launch of a next generation of satellite remote sensing systems, the explosion of drone-based and in-situ network forest observation systems, and the ability to fuse and mine large quantities of data from these sources is revolutionizing how we monitor and model forests. ForestSAT 2018 brings its participants to the forefront of this revolution. ForestSAT 2018 has five thematic areas focused on capturing these new observations and approaches in the application of spatial of analysis technologies in forestry: (1) Global forest observation; (2) New approaches to forest ecosystem modeling; (3) Remote sensing fusion; (4) Forest mapping and inventory; (5) Forest Management and Policy.
