First project report accepted

On March 29, 2022, the project team held a meeting with colleagues from the European Space Agency (ESA) to present the first project report on the research conducted and the results obtained so far in the project “Automatic monitoring of narrow-leaved ash (Fraxinus angustifolia Vahl) forests by remote sensing methods and Copernicus data”.

The prepared report covered the research and achieved results in the period from November 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022, the most important of which are data collection from Hrvatske šume Ltd and the State Geodetic Administration, which are necessary for the implementation of research and field data collection on the condition of field ash forests. During this period, numerous meetings with project partners were held to define further development of a prototype algorithm for automatic monitoring of field ash forests based on advanced remote sensing methods using space technologies, which will collect accurate and up-to-date spatial data on ash trees.

The prepared report and the submitted deliverables were approved at the meeting of the project partners and ESA representatives, and in accordance with the project contract, the disbursement of the first part of the contracted grant for the implementation of the project activities and tasks is expected.
