Paper Abstract

This paper present the basic design of an information system developed for resources assessment and environmental monitoring in the Yonezawa region of Japan. The system combines the module of satellite data and image processing with the database modulating an integrated manner. The system delivers several products, of primary and secondary nature, as well as provides for various user-defined reports for in depth analysis based on the existing database system. Landcover, soil-cover and vegetation index maps, elevation model and other topographical parameters like slope and aspect are generated by the system. Temporal monitoring of the landcover and vegetation changes is also provided by the system, as are several reports highlighting the various geographical the various geographical features int eh study region. The paper presents an interesting work since it demonstrates the use of satellite data for operational environmental monitoring while using a relatively simpler design with minimal system resources.
