New publication: Remote sensing solutions for monitoring species diversity as affected by invasive plants

February 6, 2017

A new published work featuring Hooman Latifi from Dept. of Remote Sensing and Siddhartha Khare from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee presents a full remote sensing-based approach to assess the vegetation diversity across the areas affected and invaded by Lantana camara, an invasive plant species. The study comprises two main steps  utilizing  multi-source satellite earth observation data. The process starts with a supervised classification applied on ery high spatial resolution Pléiades 1A data, and continues with comparing Pléiades 1A, RapidEye and Landsat-8 OLI – assessed plant species diversities.

With detailed mathematical formulation combined with an straightforward methodology solely based on optical remote sensing data, the study is expected to add a new baseline to the existing studies on solutions for remote and rapid estimation of biodiversity attributes in mountaineuous forest areas.
