Establishment of DB/GIS system for management of Peate Swamp Forest

 

 

For UNDP/GEF we established an integrated database / GIS for management of Peate Swamp Forest in Sabah and Sarawak, Malaysia.

 

For UNDP/GEF we established an integrated database / GIS for management of Peate Swamp Forest in Sabah and Sarawak, Malaysia.

 

We established a monitoring system based upon multi-disciplinary field monitoring points and digital satellite images. The system collected information on biological indicator species, various hydrological parameters and human activities. Furthermore, the system used multi-temporal satellite images to trace deforestation and change in the surrounding land use. All information could easily be analyzed and give answers to causes of change within the peat swamp forest.       

 

The consultancy further encompassed preliminary deforestation analysis by digital change detection, biodiversity analysis based upon number of different forest classes analysis.
