Via an official proposal submitted to the ESA, multispectral and stereo panchromatic SPOT 6/7 and Pleiades scenes were achieved over a portion of dry deciduous western Hymalayan region of India. The data delivery include three multispectral SPOT 6, two multispectral SPOT 7, two multispectral Pleiades, two stereo panchromatic SPOT 6 and one stereo panchromatic SPOT 7 scenes. The total value of the granted scenes amounts to ca. 3100 EUR.
The data has been granted and is currently being aplied under the project running title “Object Based approaches for remote sensing-assisted assessment of forest biodiversity focusing on plant species diversity and forest structural parameters”. The project serves as a part of the PhD work of Siddhartha Khare (Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee) supervised by Prof. S.K. Ghosh and Dr. Hooman Latifi from University of Würzburg.
