A workshop was held to review new remote sensing technology being applied to forestry by private, provincial, and federal agencies in Canada. Papers were presented on satellite image classification, large-scale photo sampling, sampling designs, computer applications in mapping and information systems, and the problems of technology transfer. In addition, a joint meeting was held by Canadian Institute of Forestry working groups for remote sensing, forest inventory, and biometrics, and two papers contributed at this session are included in the proceedings.
