In the strategic use of remote sensing for the
afforestation purposes the focus is on regional to
continental levels with equivalent mapping scales from
1:50000 to 1:5 million. Generic remote sesning methods
can be applied for land cover mapping and land cover
change mapping with a special reference to afforestation.
The operative use has a local perspective with an
equivalent mapping scale of approximately 1:5000.
Specific remote sensing methods for afforestation
purposes are needed in the operative use.
