Information derived from remote sensing assists in describing locations and relationships among land cover types and ecological processes. To be useful to resource managers in all land management agencies, the data need to be acquired and maintained according to high standards of accuracy and consistency, and our forestry schools must produce the skilled personnel who can take advantage of these techniques. One important use: helping the public participate in the planning process by enabling citizens to visualize the management alternatives being proposed for a particular area.
