Earth Observation Data Integration Pilot

The aim of this project was to identify and capitalise on the opportunities that the Sentinel satellites offers for the monitoring and management of forests and woodlands.  The project objective was to process a time-series of Sentinel-1 SAR satellite images to deliver image products to Forest Research for a test site in the UK.
