    ESPAÑOL. Forestry. Many government, state, and private forestry organizations and agencies today utilize geospatial technology such as GIS (geographic information systems) and satellite imagery for various applications supporting analysis, assessment, and management of our forests.. Many applications of forestry and natural resources require accurate land cover and .   With the increasing pressure on natural resources due to the rising human population, remote sensing and GIS can be used to manage these limited resources in an effective and efficient manner. Geospatial data are effective in the analysis and determination of factors that affect the utilization of these resources.

Use of Remote Sensing in Forestry Applications There are many forestry applications that remote sensing can be used for. Some of these applications include terrain analysis, forest management, recultivation, updating of existing forest inventories, forest cover type discrimination, the delineation of burned areas, and mapping of cleared areas.

The present study suggests approaches for using satellite remote sensing data for regional biomass mapping in Madhav National Park (MP). The stratified random sampling in the homogeneous vegetation strata mapped using satellite remote sensing has been effectively utilized to extrapolate the sample point biomass observations in the first by: The module provides basic and more detailed information on forest inventory, as well as links to forest inventory tools and case studies of effective forest inventories.

Forest inventory is the systematic collection of data on the forestry resources within a given area. It allows assessment of the current status and lays the ground for analysis and planning, constituting the basis for sustainable forest management. Remote sensing is the art or science of obtaining information about an object, an area or a phenomena, through analyzing of data collected by a given device or sensor that has no direct physical contact with the object, area or phenomena being investigated.

In simple terms, remote sensing is the process of acquiring data or information about an. This item: Remote Sensing Application in Forestry: Ranthambhore National Park, India. Set up a giveaway.
