    Description

    Estimates of the location and extent of the red attack stage of mountain pine beetle (Dentroctonus ponderosae Hopkins) infestations are critical for forest management. The degree of spatial and temporal precision required for these estimates varies according to the management objectives and the nature of the infestation. This paper outlines a hierarchy of information requirements, from the perspectives of forest inventory, planning, and modeling. The capability of remotely sensed data to support these information requirements is presented, with specific focus on medium (Landsat) and high (IKONOS, Quickbird) spatial resolution imagery. The importance of matching the information requirement to the appropriate data source is emphasized as a means to reduce the overhead associated with data collection and processing.
