Earth Observation provides an exciting opportunity for monitoring & assessment
Earth observation (EO) techniques can support the national condition assessments for a rapid understanding of the current state of natural resources and the trajectory of change with comparison to past data.
The uses of EO are vast, and when combined with a robust ground truthing programme (as ERAMMP are doing through the National Field Survey), they can provide a high level of confidence on broad scale and even fine scale assessment.
Within ERAMMP, EO is being used primarily to assess soil erosion and landscape features (such as linear features).
