The European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) has published the proceedings of an international workshop on the "Application of Remote Sensing in European Forest Monitoring" which was held in Vienna, Austria, in October 1996. The workshop was organized by the Space Applications Institute of the JRC, within the Forest Information from Remote Sensing (FIRS) project, in collaboration with several other organizations. The overall aim of the workshop was to provide a forum to discuss ways in which remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) could contribute to the regular collection of statistical and geo-referenced information on forest resources for the pan-European area. The publication contains all the papers given at the conference, as well as the reports from the working groups which covered four main topics: - Multi-source data integration and GIS; - Regional studies, stratification and sampling; - Change detection and monitoring of forest conditions; - Data processing and methods: Scale and accuracy.
