Remote Sensing

Since 1990, FRA complements the information collected through the country reporting process with global and regional analysis of the world’s forest resources using remote sensing. With better access to a growing archive of satellite imagery and availability of new tools to facilitate image processing and interpretations, remote sensing is becoming an important tool for assessment of status and changes in tree cover and land use.

Today, several organizations are developing global and regional products and datasets about forests. FAO collaborates with many of these organizations in order to provide users with the best possible information on how the world’s forests are changing.
