Abstract

The main objective of FIRS is to develop a forest information system for the entire European Continent, from the Atlantic to the Urals. Information will include both statistical and mapped data describing the sectorial and environmental characteristics of forested areas. Another major aim is to assist in the development and implementation of methodologies for using remotely sensed data to obtain this information.
