Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the FIRS (Forest Information from Remote Sensing) project and describes its links to the PHARE environmental remote sensing programme. PHARE is implementing several aspects of FIRS into Central European countries. Slightly different procedures are being used, such as a total coverage of Landsat TM hardcopies, to divide the single country into main homogeneous forest regions. From these forest ecosystem regions, representative forest areas are selected and used for textural and spectral analysis and for training and classification.
