Abstract: In Europe, the FOREST group of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) has recently developed high-resolution (25m) pan-European forest cover maps of the year 2000 and for years 1990 and 2006. The maps for 1990 and 2000 are based on Landsat imagery and Corine land cover information data, which is available for most of the European area. Based on these spatial forest information data sets we are able to assess forest cover change in Europe using a new developed post-classification approach. This algorithm was tested in a pilot study for the Remote Sensing Survey of the Global Forest Resource Assessment (FRA2010) within Europe.
