This guide summarises the background, design and use of the STARS group FAPAR algorithm software. The code was developed in IDL and C++, and is available as a package. The code was developed in such a manner that the end user will be able to manipulate the user interface easily, whilst the main algorithm components are protected behind the interface. The addition of new sensors, using existing generalised code has been facilitated. The addition of new, sensor specific code, when developments require it, has been incorporated, especially within the C++ code. The intention is that the code be made available on the Internet for downloading by potential users.
