Bamboo Classification and Stock Mapping in Diphu Forest Area
About the project
The Forestry Department of Karbi Anglong district of Assam had a requirement of mapping bamboo density and stock in the Diphu forest area extending across 8500 sq. km approximately. The scope of work for this project included development of land use, land cover and forest maps, generation of Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and slope, aspect and relief maps and bamboo stock mapping. We took up the work and completed it successfully.
Objectives of the Project
The primary objective of this project was to develop an application for visualization of the bamboo stock spread across the forest area. This would provide a decision-support system for the authorities to implement action plans in these zones.
