Enhancing a sustainable and better forest management through remote sensing technologies


Forest site characterisation

The Forest Characterisation service provides facts on the status and condition of predefined forest properties: Forest extension, stand delineation, forest infrastructures, main forest types, stand variables (dominant height, stand age, stand density), forest disturbances (clear cuts, fire scars), topography (DEM, slope, aspect). Read more

Wood characterisation

The Wood Characterisation service consists in the modelling and mapping of wood fibre attributes linked to the wood product potential and performance (i.e. pulp yield, density, strength and stiffness of lumber). Data handled by the wood characterisation models are: remote sensing (LIDAR) data, environmental parameters and timber attributes field measurements. Thereafter, wood characteristics are extrapolated to larger forest areas. Read more

Volume, Biomass and CO2 stocking

The Biomass and CO2 stocking service provides estimations of the living volume of trees in a forest and its CO2 stock. These products are key for the forest biomass industry and carbon accountings. Read more

Forest condition

The Forest Condition Service monitors and measures forest health condition, identifying stressed vegetation, due to drought, plagues or any other hampering cause. Read more

Ecosystem vulnerabilities

The Ecosystem Vulnerabilities Service provides information on specific ecosystem parameters, namely: watershed extent, hydrologic network, biodiversity indicators, habitat fragmentation, floods and forest fire risks. Read more

Forestry accounting

The forestry accounting info refers to a whole territory (massif, region, province, county, municipality, etc.). Read more


MySustainableForest aims at developing a pre-commercial service platform for forest stakeholders, compliant with open and standard interfaces, which integrates Earth Observation data into the forest stakeholders’ decision making processes and operations. It will be implemented on the basis of GMV prototyped service, eoforest and will leverage on partners’ expertise on LiDAR and forest modelling.

The added value of the EO based forest services of will be demonstrated in Atlantic, Alpine and Mediterranean forests across PortugalSpainFranceCroatia, the Czech Republic and Lithuania, including a variety of management protocols and forest usages. The economic viability of the service will be assessed and the associated business model validated. As a larger implication, it is expected that End-Users will optimize their operations up to 10%, participating SMEs’ headcounts increase up to 20% and GMV market share in the sector is incremented up to 10%.

MySustainableForest aims at integrating Earth Observation (EO) significantly further into forestry realm, by demonstrating the advantage of incorporating EO based information into the daily decision making, protocols and operations of the different stakeholders across the silvicultural chain.

Thus, MySustainableForest covers technological, commercial, societal and political objectives as follows:

  • To provide an innovative, cost-effective and comprehensive service for sustainable forest management at commercial stage integrating advanced EO processing with meteorological information, in-situ data and customized forestry models
  • To achieve the smart integration of services into End-Users working environment
  • To demonstrate services value for End-Users
  • To raise recommendations for policy makers

MySustainableForest in the light of global changes: forestry targets, policy objectives and megatrends

Impacts of climate change on forests around the world are worrisome. Changes in growth patterns, drought induced mortality, and species distribution shift have been observed in many forest ecosystems. Albeit being drastically impacted by changes in climate, forests are also a relevant green infrastructure mitigating climate change detrimental effects, thanks to their ecosystem services provision,

MySustainableForest platform: a new commercial service to improve forest management through Earth observation solutions

The EU project MySustainableForest develops a new commercial service where users can access geoinformation products for more sustainable and efficient forest management. Forests cover more than a third of Europe’s total land area (215 million hectares). Forestry makes a significant contribution to the EU economy, employing three million people in the sector; it already accounts
