Abstract

This paper reviews how the opportunities provided by satellite remote sensing have been exploited for the collection of information pertaining to forest resources and, building on these experiences, prospects for the future are highlighted. The use of remote sensing in forest resource assessment provides 3 levels of information : the spatial extent of forest cover which can be used to assess the spatial dynamics of forest cover; forest type; biophysical and biochemical properties of forests
