Abstract

The FIRS (Forest Information from Remote Sensing) project has been initiated by the Environmental Mapping and Modelling (EMAP) unit of the Joint Research Centre, in response to the growing need for accurate and up-to-date information on the forested areas of Europe. The main aim of the FIRS project is to design and develop a forest information system for all of Europe (including Scandinavia and Eastern Europe) in which equal emphasis is placed on sectorial (production) and environmental (ecological) forest information.
