In the ReCover project under the Framework Program 7 of the European Commission, beyond state-of-the-art service capabilities are generated to support fighting deforestation and forest degradation in the tropical region. One of the five study sites is State of Chiapas in southern Mexico. Fifteen products that characterize the state of the forest and changes were delivered during the first service stage. Wall-to-wall mapping was performed for 1992, 1994, and 2009 using Landsat and RapidEye imagery. The overall accuracy in forest and non-forest mapping was 88 % in two independent data sets of field samples and visually interpreted plots from Kompsat-2 images.
