The satellite based remote sensing forest monitoring system of Farkas-erdő of Sárvár was created to utilize high resolution ESA Sentinel-2 images and cloud computing, where processing, analysing, and displaying of health state changes of forests takes place online, in the Google Earth Engine. The system aims to monitor the forest health state change constantly with high precision in the investigation period of 2017–2020, using maps and graphs based on vegetation and moisture indices. Remotely sensed data was compared to field-based damage reports for validation purposes.
