Effective and increased use of remote sensing data in forestry is likely to occur if appropriate procedures are developed to incorporate remote sensing data into operational systems. Central to this goal is the use of all available relevant information and resources: combining remote sensing with field measurements and ancillary information and, when appropriate, developing procedures that combine different types of remote sensing. When developing an integrated procedure, it is useful to combine data types so that their respective advantages and disadvantages complement one another and produce new information that is either unique or more cost-effective than the alternatives.
