Global Mapping

One of the key requirements is the generation of a global biomass map with specified requirements to spatial resolution (150-500 m) an accuracy of 70% or better with reference year 2010.

The global biomass map shall be based upon the combination of several SAR, LiDAR and optical datasets and established algorithms for the retrieval of forest variables at regional to continental scale.

First results were presented at the PM5 meeting, held from 23 24 May 2017 at CESBIO in Toulouse, France. After finishing the validation phase the final resuts will be presented at the 3rd User Workshop, planned for 11-13 September 2017 at FAO in Rome, Italy
