Earth Observation for Change Detection - Ecological Assessment
Earth Observation and Artificial Intelligence for Detection of Global Change - Ecological Assessment (EO-AI-EcA)
Project leader: Yifang Ban is project leader for the EO-AI project , while Ulla Mörtberg is co-leader in charge of the constituent project EO-AI-EcA
Participants: Xi-Lillian Pang
Funding: Digital Futures is based on the assignment to KTH by the Swedish government to establish a strategic research environment for crossdisciplinary research on the future technologies for digitalization. Jointly established by KTH, Stockholm University and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
Project period: 2021-2024
Digital Futures researches and develops digital technologies that can bring solutions to great societal challenges, in Sweden and globally. Within the EO-AI-EcA project, we develop digital ecological assessment tools, including network analysis and a virtual species approach, in order to conduct ecological assessments on the continuous change detection based on artificial intelligence that is provided by the EO-AI project . Two main change processes that are addressed are impacts on biodiversity components in 1) urban landscapes, and 2) forest landscape changes by growth, management measures and forest fires.
