Information Requirements for Natural Resource Management with Regard to Remote Sensing


  • W. Vrzal


The overall objective of this study is to: - identify information requirements of potential user groups of IIASA's Sustainable Boreal forest Resources (FOR) Project; and, - discuss critical aspects of remote sensing technology transfer. An internal workshop, including researchers of the Institutional Framework Group (Case Study I) and the Carbon Group (Case Study II), was designed as a platform to identify information requirements specific to these groups. The critical aspects of remote sensing technology transfer that were identified served as guidelines for the workshop design. the workshop is evaluated using the results of a questionnaire provided to the participants. The results of this study could be as a decision-support with regard to future remote sensing activities within the FOR project. The critical aspects of remote sensing technology transfer that were identified could serve as guidance for the remote sensing community to improve the potential for remote sensing applications. The author conducted this work during a three-month period as a participant of IIASA's 1999 Young Scientists Summer Program.
