Abstract:Vegetation, more specifically forests and their comprising elements - trees, have been a product of consumption by mankind for as long as history can reveal. The industry, which is rapidly developing on a global level, in many of its aspects, is responsible for the increase in the demand for such natural resources. The destruction of forests leads to poor air quality, natural disasters and aggravation of climate. Cyprus, being the geographic location of interest for this project, is experiencing all of the mentioned consequences of deforestation. In order to reverse the situation and make a change, the level of awareness should be increased. The goal of this research project is to provide a solution for monitoring the status of vegetation through data visualizations and implement an easy process of initiation of new afforestation on the island, thus helping improve climate levels, reduce wildfires, and prevent further natural risks. To gain a better perspective as to how this could be achieved, a literature review is conducted where related projects are reviewed and proper implementation techniques are identified. Subsequently, actual design and implementation of the product is conducted, eventually delivering a final working prototype in the form of a web application.
