Harvest Area Spectral Regeneration
The ABMI Harvest Area Spectral Regeneration 2019 product replaces the previous 2018 version. Like its predecessor, it is a polygon data set comprising the ABMI’s Human Footprint Inventory (HFI) 2019 harvest area polygons, attributed with additional information on regeneration as detected through satellite-based spectral signals, where suitable. This data set continues to complement and enhance current information on human footprint across Alberta by providing a broad-scale perspective on regeneration patterns on harvest areas.
As a complement to the ABMI’s Human Footprint Inventory (HFI), the updated 2019 Harvest Area Spectral Regeneration dataset comprises the remote sensing-based characterization of vegetation regrowth in relevant harvest area polygons contained within this inventory. The HFI currently treats temporary successional footprints and other, more permanent footprints equally. The intent of this dataset is to enhance current information on some of Alberta’s temporary successional human footprints by providing estimates of post-harvest regeneration as seen through changes in spectral signals detected from the Earth’s land surface. The broad-scale perspective of this dataset offers regional and provincial insights into patterns of regeneration after forest harvest in Alberta.
