Final conference on Innoforestview project

News

The final conference on the Innoforestview project was held on May 28, 2021.

The event was attended by Russian and Finnish project partners, representatives of the Committee for External Relations and the Committee for Informatization and Communications of St. Petersburg and Cross-Border Cooperation Program «South-East Finland Russia» 2014-2020, organizations in the field of forestry, ecology and nature management, etc.

LITSAM representatives made a report on the results of Earth observation data processing for analysis of negative impact on forests and development of unified innovation information system for analysis and forecasting the preconditions and impact of natural and anthropogenic factors on the forest state in cross-border areas.

The main attention was paid to the system developed by LITSAM specialists and containing the results of project implementation – its work was  demonstrated to the conference participants.

InnoForestView project information system is now in open access

News

In the framework of InnoForestView project LITSAM specialists completed the development of a pilot version of an information system for analysis and forecasting the preconditions and impact of natural and anthropogenic factors on the forest state in cross-border area.

The information system is open and can be accessed by following the link or using a QR code:

The system provides users with the ability to quickly view data on the state of forests, analyze the dynamics of its changes, and is also equipped with simple tools for loading new data necessary for solving specific problems.

Currently, the system is being filled with spatial data, including those obtained by the Russian and Finnish partners of the Innoforestview project.

We invite all interested users to register in the system and test its work!

LITSAM will take part in WaterDrive project

News

LITSAM will participate in the implementation of the WaterDrive project (Water driven rural development in the Baltic Sea Region) of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region program.

WaterDrive is the first interdisciplinary project carried out jointly by different departments of the SPC RAS – SPIIRAS and the Institute of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development (IAERD).

In this project, LITSAM is responsible for development of unified information system that unites the results provided by Russian project participants.

Work under the Union State of Russia and Belarus program continues

News

LITSAM continues to participate in the work under the Union State of Russia and Belarus program.

In February 2021, following the results of the competition held, the SPC RAS ​​concluded an agreement and LITSAM began to carry out an integral part of the research work under the new program «Integration – US».

As in the previous programs «Monitoring-US» and «Technology-US», the state customer on the part of Russia is Roscosmos, the direct customer for the SPC RAS is Space Systems Research and Development Institute (NII KS) – a branch of Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center.

The main problem solved in the project is the creation of technology and appropriate software that provide automation of the complex application of Earth remote sensing data received from all spacecraft of the orbital constellation of Russia and Belarus.
