(2006-05-05) This report and accompanying materials share the interim results of the second stage of our initial change analysis project. Satellite images from different dates (~1990 and ~2000) for the Boreal Plains Ecozone in Saskatchewan and Manitoba were compared using a differencing algorithm so that we could assess where recent forest disturbances have occurred.
