Comparing Sentinel-1 Surface Water Mapping Algorithms and Radiometric Terrain Correction Processing in Southeast Asia Utilizing Google Earth Engine

Satellite remote sensing plays an important role in the monitoring of surface water for historical analysis and near-real-time applications. Due to its cloud penetrating capability, many studies have focused on providing efficient and high-quality methods for surface water mapping using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). However, few studies have explored the effects of SAR pre-processing steps … CONTINUE READING

Creating NDVI based thresholded thematic map from MODIS

In this tutorial, we will use the MODIS based V6 Terra Vegetation Indices 16-Day Global 250m product. This MODIS NDVI and EVI products are computed from atmospherically corrected bi-directional surface reflectances that have been masked for water, clouds, heavy aerosols, and cloud shadows. We will use this product to create NDVI based threshold classified thematic … CONTINUE READING

Predictive Analytics for Identifying Land Cover Change Hotspots in the Mekong Region

Understanding land cover change dynamics and potential pathways of change is of critical importance for sustainable resource management, to promote food security and resilience on a range of spatial scales. Data scarcity is a key concern, however, with the availability of free Earth Observation (EO) data, such challenges can be suitably addressed. In this research, … CONTINUE READING

Operational Flood Risk Index Mapping for Disaster Risk Reduction using Earth Observations and Cloud Computing Technologies: a Case Study on Myanmar

People, livelihoods, and infrastructure in Myanmar suffer from devastating monsoonal flooding on a frequent basis. Quick and effective management of flood risk relies on planning and preparedness to ensure the availability of supplies, shelters and emergency response personnel. The mandated government agency Department of Disaster Management (DDM) as well as local and international organizations play … CONTINUE READING

Linking Earth Observations for Assessing the Food Security Situation in Vietnam: a Landscape Approach

Land cover change and its impact on food security is a topic that has major implications for development in population-dense Southeast Asia. The main drivers of forest loss include the expansion of agriculture and plantation estates, growth of urban centers,extraction of natural resources, and water infrastructure development. The design and implementation of appropriate land use … CONTINUE READING
