Deep Green Ukraine is a system of satellite monitoring of Ukrainian forests, which will allow to analyze open data of government agencies (land cadastre, forest maps, logging tickets, etc.) and satellite data, to detect illegal logging and planned monitoring.
Deep Green Ukraine is an independent system that allows you to automatically analyze open data of government agencies (land cadastre, forest maps, logging tickets, etc.) and satellite data, detect illegal logging and monitor planned.
The system allows you to find out in close-up mode how much forest has disappeared from the forest map of Ukraine and when it happened. The system is available in pilot regions: Kyiv, Lviv, Zakarpattia and Odesa, scaling is planned for the whole of Ukraine. The system is planned to be transferred to the balance of the relevant government agencies to provide administration and technical support.
Deep Green Ukraine is implemented by the joint efforts of the Space Research Institute of NASU and SSAU, the NGO “Government Monitoring Center” and the “Forest Initiatives and Communities” (ForestCom).
The development of the Deep Green Ukraine system was made possible by winning the Open Data Challenge, implemented within the USAID / UK aid international technical assistance project “Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services / TAPAS” with the support of the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine. The activities of the Forest Initiatives and Communities NGO also is supported by the US Forest Service.
