    Description

    The FIA vision for remote sensing originated in 1992 with the Blue Ribbon Panel on FIA, and it has since evolved into an ambitious performance target for 2003. FIA is joining a consortium of Federal agencies to map the Nation's land cover. FIA field data will help produce a seamless, standardized, national geospatial database for forests at the scale of 30-m Landsat pixels. This database includes classifications of forest types, estimates of percent tree cover, and other land attributes that can be used in geospatial models for large-area assessments. Mapping of more detailed forest conditions is feasible.
