Multispectral satellite data with medium spatial resolution--from the familiar Landsat and SPOT satellites, among other platforms--represent a valuable source of current and historical forest cover and condition information. These satellites have a large "footprint," and the data can be interpreted with reasonable accuracy. The result is low cost per unit area of forest attribute information. Utility and value are greatly enhanced, however, by integrating the information with other sources of data.
