ForestSAT is a non-profit professional organization created to promote the application of spatial analysis technologies in forestry. We strive to facilitate cooperation among research organizations, universities, government agencies, and the private sector to foster a science-based understanding of how spatial analysis technologies can describe and monitor forested ecosystems. Recognized is an inherent need to integrate data from multiple remote sensing systems, field-based observations, and other spatial information, using a variety of approaches. Numerous uses of spatial data are relevant, from addressing the needs of local forest managers, to informing forest ecosystem models, to establishing monitoring systems in support of international agreements.
