We just launched the Germany-wide Vitality Map, a pioneering project that highlights the most critical challenges facing German forests.
Using data from ESA satellites, we are able to evaluate the health of every forest across the nation, dividing it by municipalities and levels of vitality loss.
Latest vitality data recorded on the 15.07.2023 by BitApps. In areas, where no recent satellite imagery was available due to cloud cover, vitality loss was calculated based on data from 2022.
