Land use planning and resource management today requires that a vast amount of geographic intelligence is readily available in a timely fashion. It requires accurate, scalable information that can be used for strategic planning over very large land bases as well as detailed high resolution for operational on-the-ground applications. In the past this range of uses has been largely unattainable without completing multiple level inventories at high cost. Fortunately things have changed. With high speed computers, powerful software and high resolution digital imagery and lidar, the world and its resources can now be mapped at very high resolution and scaled at what ever level of detail is required for a specific application. Furthermore, the data can be mined and retrospective analysis performed at virtually any time new questions arise. Silvatech has been applying digital mapping, GIS. and remote sensing analysis technology since 1986. Since then we have been researching and developing a multitude of applications for geomatics technology in land and resource management. Our mapping division, Earth Imaging Technologies Inc., together with our imaging partners, offers a wide variety of digital imagery and lidar data sets and derived map products. We host several industry-standard digital mapping and remote sensing platforms, as well as proprietary in-house software. Silvatech can work with both hard copy prints and diaps as well as full digital imagery and lidar. We work closely with subject matter experts to ensure that our mapping solutions reflect the best knowledge base available and make sense on the ground. We help you get the most from your data. Often government agencies, industrial resource developers and other land and resource managers possess very valuable digital data that they are not getting full value from. Silvatch has decades of experience in mining digital land and resource data sets and extracting valuable information that can save signinficant time and costs. We also have found that some clients, unkowingly, have data sets that are inaccesable, incompatible, incomplete, inconsistant or non-conforming to standards. Silvatech can help you audit, organize, warehouse, serve and improve the integrity of your data so that it can support your application needs much better. We have the tools and experience to empower you with enabling land and resource intelligence.

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world. The pressure of this huge population on the limited land resource is changing the land covers rapidly with diminishing amount of forest and other natural resources. For several decades, various agencies develop land cover maps for various purposes, using remote sensing and ancillary data. Inconsistency in land cover definition and classification due to dissimilarities of organization's objectives, methodology, boundary and capacities - restrict the comparison of land cover and change detection over time. A standardized classification system for an entire country, allowing the representation of each Government entities’ interest, is the first step for producing consistent and comparable land cover information. In this context, Bangladesh Forest department developed national land representation system in collaboration with national and international organizations. FAO provided technical support for all these activities. The gaps of existing land cover mapping process have been identified and addressed. This is the first time a national land representation system is developed based on all existing land cover classification system and using the last FAO land cover classification system LCCS. LCCS3 is an ISO standard for land cover and the national land representation system is flexible. It can be updated over time and this provides a robust system to ensure the consistency of land cover monitoring over time and at different levels. Based on the National Land Representation system or NLRS, the land cover map 2015 of Bangladesh has been developed. This NLRS based land cover map 2015 is being used for various purposes including assessment of SDG indicators, development of a forest baseline for REDD+, assessment of land degradation and implementation of the Bangladesh Forest Inventory (BFI). Development of a harmonized classification system and its application in developing land cover dataset at national scale is one of the first ever initiatives and is expected to be the foundation for building sustainability in land cover assessment and monitoring in Bangladesh. The NLRS and Land cover map will facilitate activities of different sectors such as, forestry, agriculture, water, physical planning, soil and other sectors.

From development and land cover differences to elevation, many factors influence land surface temperature (LST) dynamics. The Earth’s surface temperature can be measured using LST data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) onboard the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Aqua and Terra satellites and the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) sensor onboard the Terra satellite. LST measurements can be used to study climatic phenomena such as the urban heat island (UHI) effect and deadly heatwaves. This data visualization was created using MODIS and ASTER data distributed by NASA’s Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC), located at the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center.

David Saah, Professor and Director of the Geospatial Analysis Lab at the University of San Francisco, explains how FAO’s Global Forest Resources Assessment (FRA) programme is working in partnership with NASA to integrate its technology into Global Remote Sensing Survey as FAO fulfils its mandate to measure, monitor and report on forests worldwide. With the support from USAID, NASA and FAO have jointly developed Collect Earth Online, a new, easy-to-use online tool that facilitates assessment of land use and land cover as well as land-use change through visual interpretation of high resolution satellite imagery. This tool will help with FAO to implement planned Global Remote Sensing Survey designed to improve estimates of forest land-use change at global and regional scales. The tool will also improve countries’ capacity to use remote sensing to derive improved national estimates which they can use to report to FRA as well as to monitor progress towards implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and Nationally Determined Contributions within the Paris Agreement.
