Cornell Cooperative Extension will hold two one-hour Forest Connect webinars on Using Remote Sensing Data to Build a Nationwide Forest Inventory on April 21st at noon and 7 pm EDT
Remote-sensing supported datasets are being used to inform new methods for quantifying fire risk, forest inventory, and unlock forest carbon for natural capital marketplaces.
These webinars by Dr. Nan Pond from SilviaTerra will compare different types of remote sensing, such as radar, Lidar, and multispectral imagery, and cover ways that foresters can engage with this technology and products developed using it.
Dr. Pond will share the history and technology behind SilviaTerra’s national Basemap dataset, built in collaboration with Microsoft’s AI for Earth program, as well as discuss other similar high-resolution forest inventory data products.
To take part in one of these webinars, you need to register.
