Frequently Asked Questions
We integrate various data sources and remote sensing products for forest monitoring applications. For deforestation and reforestation monitoring, the monitoring layers are created by multispectral or radar satellite sensors. Fire is detected via thermal sensors. In contrast to this, the biodiversity layer uses various data inputs including from on the ground surveys.
We prefer the integration of open-source data. However, for specific cases, open-source data sets do not offer the same quality as commercial monitoring data layers. On-demand we also integrate additional commercial monitoring data sets.
This depends on the data layer. For the fire monitoring the data gets updated every 24 hours. Deforestation monitoring updates are delivered on a weekly basis. Key Biodiversity Areas are only updated twice a year.
All of your project locations, e.g. geodata is managed via the explorer.land backend. You can import or draw your polygons right in the user backend or we support you with your geodata import. The initial portal set up is conducted by the OpenForests team.
The monitoring data is offered via our online portal. No additional hardware or desktop installments are required.
