Information System Remote sensing of forest environments: concepts and case studies. The current outbreak of mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) in western Canada has been increasing over the past decade and is currently estimated to be impacting 9.2 million hectares, with varying levels of severity.Large area insect monitoring is typically undertaken using manual aerial overview sketch mapping, where an interpreter depicts areas of homogenous insect attack This work supports the use of multitemporal remote sensing imagery This work also serves as the basis for studying the global trend of forest restoration in the future. Aiming toward long-term sustainability for the forest environment. But it is not the case for every zone to have images for every season complex biophysical environment and limitations of remote sensing data per se.
