Comprehensive technology of mapping and monitoring the heterogeneous vegetation cover

I.D. Zolnikov, V.A. Lyamina, and A.Yu Korolyuk

We present a comprehensive technology of mapping and monitoring the heterogeneous vegetation cover by the use of remote sensing and geoinformation-based modeling techniques. Identification of vegetation contours through the use of these techniques offers a means of mapping not only homogeneous but also heterogeneous terrestrial ecosystems as well as monitoring their dynamics, because changes in specific areas of elements of territorial vegetation units and border formations represent sensitive indicators of changes of global and regional ecological factors.
