Forest Tree Groupings Database of the EU-15 and pan-European Area Derived from NOAA-AVHRR Data

The project aimed at combining Earth Observation (EO) data and forest inventory statistics. A methodology for producing calibrated, digital forest probability maps for different classes (forest; other wooded land; also coniferous, broadleaved, mixed forest maps) at the pan-European level was developed. The process applied NOAA AVHRR satellite data and forest statistics. The statistics were taken from both Eurostat 'Forestry Statistics 1992-1996' for EU15 countries and from three case study countries. The data for the three case study countries was based on national forest statistics.
