UNITE Stakeholder cruise on mapping forest information brought together researchers and those working with forest information to discuss the possibilities of mapping. Below you can find the presentations of the event.
Forest resources maps for volume, biomass or other basic characteristics have been produced since 1990’s. Nowadays, a wide spectrum of different remote sensing materials and data analysis techniques are utilized for mapping forests, their use and even user experiences. Tree level maps on the tree dimensions, growth, stress levels and health are already a possibility. What we still need is better understanding of the uncertainties involved in the maps, in order to best utilize them in decision making.
