The suitability of optical IKONOS satellite data (multispectral and panchromatic) for the estimation of forest structural attributes – for example, stems per hectare (SPHA), diameter at breast height (DBH), mean tree height (MTH), basal area (BA) and volume in plantation forest environments – was assessed in this study. The relationships of these forest(More)
Detection of individual trees remains a challenge for forest inventory efforts espe-15 cially in homogeneous, even-aged plantation scenarios. Airborne imagery has mainly been used for detection of individual trees using local maxima filtering, as point spread function and signal-to-noise ratio are smaller than with satellite-borne imagery. This led to the(More)

Schistosomiasis is a snail-borne disease endemic in sub-Saharan Africa transmitted by freshwater snails. The distribution of schistosomiasis coincides with that of the intermediate hosts as determined by climatic and environmental factors. The aim of this paper was to model the spatial and seasonal distribution of suitable habitats for Bulinus globosus and(More)
Malaria is a serious public health threat in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), and its transmission risk varies geographically. Modelling its geographic characteristics is essential for identifying the spatial and temporal risk of malaria transmission. Remote sensing (RS) has been serving as an important tool in providing and assessing a variety of potential(More)
