Dataset Overview

Spatial data (raster) of changes in forest canopy condition from 1984 to 2009, based on remote sensing data

See Full Dataset Documentation


This study uses remote sensing images, which can be used to assess the crown condition of forests over long time periods and large areas. A forest health rating based on canopy “greenness”, photosynthetic capacity, canopy density and water content was applied.
