Canadian and United States (U.S.) extensive forest inventories are contrasted. The Canadians have had more experience in mapping and remote sensing; the U.S., in collecting, handling, and reporting change data. Development of common standards, terms, and definitions, as well as a common forest and land classification system, would facilitate cooperation and exchange of information.
