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.

A description of the algorithms and methods can be found in the ATBD.
