Who should attend?
Managers and Technical Analysts from Forestry, Agriculture, Remote Sensing and GIS Organizations in Private and Public Sectors.

What will attendees learn?

  • How very high-resolution satellite remote sensing technology is being deployed commercially for tree inventory and condition analysis.
  • Tools that are available now to help agriculture, forestry and environmental decision makers in areas with sparse water resources.
  • How to use satellite data in support of environmental planning and policy creation.

Richard Flemmings, Proteus Project Manager, will offer insights into a recent 20-million tree mapping and classification project performed by Proteus FZC in Abu Dhabi. As an extension to an Emirate-wide habitat and land use/land cover project, Proteus applied advanced processing algorithms to the multispectral and panchromatic WorldView-2 image data to differentiate many tree species and assess the condition of individual trees, critical for irrigation management.

“This project demonstrates the viability of using very high-resolution satellite imagery to quickly and cost effectively create baseline vegetative inventories within diverse land-use areas,” said Flemmings. “The mapping technique used in Abu Dhabi can be applied to create forest and vegetation inventories of other species anywhere in the world.”

Since 2011, Proteus has been delivering solutions for mapping and classification projects using multispectral satellite imagery. These mapping projects have been delivered for environmental, oil & gas, engineering and other coastal zone applications in Europe, USA, the Middle East and Caribbean.
