Overview of the project
The organization is in charge of the regular observation of the state of small water bodies and wetlands. This is very useful in arid and semi-arid regions, as their existence is entirely controlled by the rhythm of the rains.
Through data mapping, water bodies and lowlands are clearly identifiable. In this study, a contextual method based upon local contrast was developed. A systematic validation will be conducted and a map of water bodies and wetlands will be produced.
To map the Ivory Coast's water bodies.
The study will benefit from a database of countries’ water bodies, enabling decision-makers to make decisions about mountain water scarcity.
