Wetlands are important for the world due to the benefits they offer to humanity. However, there are studies showing their decrease in number in several regions. A form of monitoring of the wetlands is necessary to evaluate their reduction, appearance and / or disappearance. The Tunki project is a project to detect wetlands in a given region using satellite images and high-performance computing. The present work, exposes its architecture and its case study: the wetlands in the Chili river basin of the Arequipa-Peru region. The results show the wetlands detected and the mosaics generated using the satellite images and HPC. © 2018 Latin American and Caribbean Consortium of Engineering Institutions. All rights reserved.
The Tunki project team thanks Fondecyt - Peru (National Fund for Scientific, Technological and Technological Innovation) for the project's grant.
