Bureau of Land Management

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) requires field-based measurements to support management decisions covering vast expanses of land. By integrating remote sensing into the BLM's Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring strategy, field-based monitoring data are leveraged to generate information and maps that would otherwise be too expensive to produce. The BLM is developing a core set of integrated and scalable remote sensing tools that will provide an integrated, quantitative monitoring approach to efficiently and effectively document the impacts from authorized and unauthorized disturbance and land treatment activities at local and regional scales.
