  • 1. Progress of Land Ecosystem Studies with Geo-Information and Space Technology in Great Mekong Subregion (GMS)
    Prof. Liu Chuang
    International Cooperation Program of Institute of Remote Sensing Applications
    Data Center on Natural Resources and Environment of Institute of Geography and Natural Resources
    Chinese Academy of Sciences
    China-Thailand Geo-Information Workshop Series 1: Agricultural Applications
    30 June 2010, Pattaya, Thailand
  • 2. Outlines
    Background and Objectives
    Progress of Land Ecosystem Studies on GMS
    Further Actions
  • 3. 1.1 Background: Six Countries Share One River – Mekong River
  • 4.
  • 5. 1.1 Background: Great Mekong Subregion
    GMS, from ADB in 1992, includes six countries, Cambodia, People’s Republic of China (two provinces), the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, covers 2.57 Millions KM2 and 325 Millions people
  • 6. If you want to rich, you have to be reached firstthen business follows
    81 priority projects was funded by ADB from 1992-2011. The estimated total investment for these projects within the 20 years is USD 14,056 Millions. Transportation, energy, economic corridors, communication, tourism, agriculture, environment, public health, capacity building, trade facilities are major fields of the joint activities. Three economic corridors are on the way to be established based on the traffic corridors
  • 7. 1.2 Background: On-going Cooperation Projects
    UN GAID e-SDDC Phase II: 2010-2012
    Focus: Scientific data for support UN MDGs in regional level (cross countries), with the progress assessment methodology (in time serious)
    IRSA is the data and information achieve and service center for the UN GAID e-SDDC
    Joint Project of Science Council of Asia on Open and Application Scientific Data for Poverty Reduction and Ecosystem Protection in Asia
    Co-chaired by Liu Chuang from CAS and Parkon (Chairman of WGISS/CEOS) from GISTDA
  • 8. Joint International Workshop in September 2009 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolian
    Joint together with APN, WGISS/CEOS, CODATA and UN GAID e-SDDC
    More than 40 participates from Mongolia, Japan, China, Thailand, as well as USA and ESA jointed the workshop
    A new and practical methodology how to use the updated space science and technology for climate change and ecosystem monitoring analysis was discussed
  • 9. 1.3 Objectives
    Land Ecosystem Map of GMS in 1: 1million scale and validated samples in 20-30 meters pixels
    Provide online application services for GMS studies
    Show case how to use geo-information and space technology to support the cross boundary research and decision making
  • 10. 2. Progress of Land Ecosystem Studies on GMS
    CBERS, HJ, TM/ETM, MODIS Remote Sensing Data
    Fundamental geo-informatics (BND, rivers, road, rroad, pplacesp, pplacesg)
    DEM and Landforms (landform types, slopes)
    Climate (temperature, rainfall, regionalization)
    Socio-economics (BND, investment from ADB projects, UN statistics)
    Cases of Land Cover classification with support from CBERS integrating with TM/ETM and MODIS
  • 11. CBERS
  • 12. MODIS
    LandSat TM/ETM+
  • 13. DEM and Landform
  • 14. Land Slope Map
  • 15. Landform Classification Map
  • 16. Climate data
    Example: data from 15stations
  • 17. Climate (tmp)
  • 18. ClimateRainfall
  • 19. ClimateRegionali-zation
  • 20. Climate regionali-zation of Thailand
  • 21. Administrative Boundary GIS data
  • 22. 泰国一级水系
  • 23.
  • 24. Land Cover
  • 25.
  • 26. 3. Further Actions
    Complete the Land Ecosystem Classification for Map of Land Ecosystem of GMS In 1:1M
    Data Integrating and Mining for Land Ecosystem Classification in GMS
    Validation with high resolution remote sensing images in cases studies
    Development of date sharing and service system
    Development of an e-Science platform
  • 27. 3. Further Actions
    Provide suggestions and recommendations to decision makers
    Development of international cooperation
  • 28. 4. Conclusion
    From our experiences on geo-information and space science application for land ecosystem analysis in GMS, land ecosystem mapping is the fundamental data and information for agriculture and environment
    Making science benefit society, it may be a special case or examples for UN MDGs and e-SCIENCES
    It may be good start for the cooperation between IRSA and GISTDA
