Description: The Austrian National Forest Inventory (AFI) started in 1961 on a temporary plot design with a systematic grid and a period of 10 years. For the first 30 years it was conducted as a continuous forest inventory. Since 1981 a permanent plot system has been used and the assessment period was reduced. Only slight changes in the plot design have occurred since the beginning of the inventory. During the past 45 years AFI changed from a survey of forest area, growing stock, and increment to a complex monitoring system covering many aspects of the forest ecosystem. Up to now the assessments have been restricted to the forest area but in the future AFI could be extended to become a landscape monitoring system. An ongoing project uses satellite imagery from Landsat with a k-Nearest-Neighbour technique over all of Austria aiming at maps and estimates with higher accuracy for small regions.
