About this portal

The Remote Sensing Survey portal provides access to global sample tiles used by the Global Forest Resource Assessment (FRA-RSS). It enables the search, display and download of tile information, associated satellite imagery and auxiliary data. The database consists of 13,689 samples of 10 km squares located at the junction of each latitude and longitude line across the globe (excluding Antarctica).

Public users can find out about the study and view and download the Landsat data. Authorised national expert users can login and download draft labelled polygons for checking and then upload the validated data.
