Abstract

Project ReCover, funded by the 7th Framework Program of the European Union, developed beyond state-of-theart service capabilities to support fighting deforestation and forest degradation in the tropical region in the context of the REDD process (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation). A monitoring system for forest cover mapping by combining wall-to-wall mapping and a sample of VHR imagery was introduced. Also biomass and changes of forest cover changes were estimated. ReCover provided close to one hundred products for the study sites in Mexico, Guyana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Colombia and Fiji using optical and SAR data and their combinations. The accuracy in forest and nonforest classification varied from 85 % to 97 %
