This overview of the potential challenges and advantages in integrating remote sensing into forest information systems provides a context for subsequent articles in this issue. We first survey the status of and new developments in remote sensing programs. Next we discuss the appropriate role of remote sensing in forestry and explore the idea of collaborative implementation, stressing the professional responsibility that the remote sensing community has to the partnership. We then describe collaborative opportunities to use remote sensing to help provide the best possible forest information. We close with brief introductions to other articles in this special issue.
