DescriptionThe new Brazilian national forest inventory (NFI) is being planned to be carried out through five components: (1) general coordination, led by the Brazilian Forest Service; (2) vegetation mapping, which will serve as the basis for sample plot location; (3) field data collection; (4) landscape data collection of 10 x 10-km sample plots, based on high-resolution satellite imagery interpretation; and (5) associated programs. The mapping will be based on 1:250,000-scale topographic maps and China-Brazil Earth Resource Satellite images. The standard sample plot distribution will be based on a systematic grid of 20 x 20 km. The NFI will be held based on a 5-year measurement cycle.
