EUFODOS (European Forest Downstream Services Improved Information on Forest Structure and Damage)

Overview

The EUFODOS project was initialized within the SPACE call SPA.2010.1.1-01 - "Stimulating the Development of Downstream GMES Services". EUFODOS is focusing on the development of operational downstream services on forest degradation issues.

Description

The European Earth Observation Programme GMES provides data useful in tackling a range of issues including climate change and citizens' security. The purpose of GMES is to deliver information which corresponds to user needs. The Forest Downstream Services (FDS) to be developed within EUFODOS include in particular the assessment of forest damage and the measurement of functional parameters for commercial and protective forests. These monitoring services urgently required by regional European forest authorities will be developed to an operational level by a consortium of research organisations and commercial service providers from Austria, Germany, Finland, Italy, Bulgaria and Poland.
