EUFODOS - European Forest Downstream Service
Background
The Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) programme is embedded in a philosophy that the application of Earth Observation (EO) for decision-making has to be driven by the user community. This is especially relevant in certain environmental fields such as forestry, where so far traditional field-based measurements and data for many foresters still have been the primary source of valid information. Key forest information topics which require additional R&D to become operational downstream services at a local, national or regional level relate to the assessment of forest damage and forest function parameters.
