Monitoring Forest Cover Changes in Madhya Pradesh
The Madhya Pradesh Forestry Department monitors all forestry-related operations with ERDAS IMAGINE and ERDAS APOLLO.
Forests represent a significant resource for the state of Madhya Pradesh, India, with both forestry and non-timber forest products, such as medicinal herb collection, contributing to the welfare of the citizens. Owing to the economic importance of forest wealth, the Madhya Pradesh Forestry Department implemented an integrated platform to conduct change analysis studies over time, land use surveillance, and forest mapping, all processed on a central data server. Reports are distributed to over 15,000 committees in their geographically dispersed workforce that serve to protect and manage forests in the state.
