Abstract

The FIRS (Forest Information from Remote Sensing) project was launched by the Environmental Mapping and Modelling Unit of the Institute for Remote Sensing Applications (IRSA) of the JRC. The major objective is to assist in providing information from remotely sensed data for a forest information system for Europe. This concerns both sectorial, production related and environmental information. The MERA programme of PHARE is implementing part of FIRS in Central and Eastern European countries.
