Description: The Regional Council of Martinique has chosen the French national forest inventory to realize Martinique's forest and other natural lands map. The project is divided into the three following steps: (1) nomenclature proposal and study area delineation; (2) mapping of the vegetation based on 2005 airborne orthophotographs, Geographic Information System-based slope and accessibility analysis maps, and a land cover change map based on the comparison of 2004 and 1951 airborne covers; crossed maps will be produced to show areas that can potentially be developed for agriculture, forestry, or land protection; (3) and presentation of the results.
