Control of Digital Models of Land and Forest Redistribution Plans with IRS Satellite Images

Participants: Proles Engineering Ltd., BASA-ReSAC

The regular updates of the Forest Management Plans (FMP) require update information for the forest cover and status. As such the IRS 5m. b/w images were used to assist in the FMP update.

An IRS image for 3 regions in Bulgaria has been processed - orthorectified, enhanced and subsetted to map sheets such as those of scale 1:10,000. The satellite images were used in the field work of the survey companies to locate the forest boundaries and other features as well as in the process of digitalisation in the office.
