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.
