Abstract

The primary objective of the tropical ecosystem environment observation by satellite (TREES) project is to develop a suite of techniques for establishing a comprehensive tropical forest monitoring system. A basic element of this approach is the production of vegetation cover maps which can be used for the analysis of vegetation distribution, at regional and continental scale, and as a reference for identifying and measuring changes in vegetation cover over large areas. The Vegetation Map of Central Africa is the first of such documents.
