EARTH OBSERVATION / GIS




Vegetation study of Mt. Mulanje, Malawi




Mt. Mulanje has been identified as a botanically-rich biodiversity 'hot-spot' in need of protection and as a centre for plant diversity.  The flora of the massif is of botanical and biogeographical importance due the number of endemics it supports.


Our client provided us with some ground truth information and within a couple of days we provided enhanced images and a botanical classification to be linked up in a GIS for planning of detailed biodiversity surveys. The classification identified several evergreen forest types (red, orange and yellow in upper right image) and a big variation in the alpine grassland to be surveyed.
