Title: Multistage remote sensing: toward an annual national inventory
Author: Czaplewski, Raymond L.

Description: Remote sensing can improve efficiency of statistical information. Landsat data can identify and map a few broad categories of forest cover and land use. However, more-detailed information requires a sample of higher-resolution imagery, which costs less than field data but considerably more than Landsat data. A national remote sensing program would be a major undertaking, requiring unprecedented partnerships between federal programs and stakeholders.
Keywords: forest inventories, remote sensing
