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

Land cover Mapping in Data Scarce Environments: Challenges and Opportunities. Another paper on Land Cover

Land cover maps are a critical component to make informed policy, development, planning, and resource management decisions. However, technical, capacity and institutional challenges inhibit the creation of consistent and relevant land cover maps for use in developing regions. Many developing regions lack coordinated capacity, infrastructure, and technologies to produce a robust land cover monitoring system … CONTINUE READING

Primitives as building blocks for constructing landcover maps – New paper out on RLCMS and Google Earth Engine

Land cover maps play an integral role in environmental management. However, countries and institutes encounter many challenges with producing timely, efficient, and temporally harmonized updates to their land cover maps. To address these issues we present a modular Regional Land Cover Monitoring System (RLCMS) architecture that is easily customized to create land cover products using … CONTINUE READING

Validation of a cadastral map created using satellite imagery and automated feature extraction techniques: A case of Nepal

Estimates suggest that only 30 percent of the world’s population has access to formal land administration systems to register and protect their land rights. Surveying and mapping cadastral boundaries using traditional, field-based methods is accurate but can prove to be extremely time, cost and labor-intensive. This makes it difficult to create or update existing cadastral … CONTINUE READING

Intricacies of implementing an ITU-T X.1303 Cross-Agency Situational-Awareness Platform in Maldives, Myanmar, and the Philippines

Maldives, Myanmar, and the Philippines are vulnerable to natural disasters. Sendai Framework of Action calls for risk reduction by implementing early warning systems. A prevailing challenge is for authorities to coordinate warnings across disparate communication systems and autonomous organizations. Cross-Agency Situational-Awareness platforms and the ITU-T X.1303 Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) interoperable data standards present themselves … CONTINUE READING
