Remote sensing technologies have tremendous potential for day-to-day field use, but on-the-ground foresters have thus far not been able to embrace them. One reason is that field foresters require information, not images, and that information must be applicable for small timber sales and management units. To make the technology useful, remote sensing specialists need to develop "turnkey" programs that ask what results are needed and then access the necessary images, suggest ground sampling strategies and measurements, apply the appropriate algorithms, and report results.
