The Spanish National Forest Inventory: history, development, challenges and perspectives

Pesquisa Florestal Brasileira, Vol. 37, No. 91. (29 September 2017), 361,


It is important to have a statistically robust forest information data base which can be updated and can provide long-term information. National Forest Inventories (NFI) provide one of the best large-scale sources of information, and therefore are a cornerstone of forest policies. The scopes of NFIs, which are the primary source of data for national and large-area assessments, has been broadened to include new variables to meet increasing information requirements. This paper describes the history, methodology and guidance of Spanish NFI and international requirements. The current objectives are ...


Bridging national and reference definitions for harmonizing forest statistics

Forest Science (June 2012), pp. 214-223,


Harmonization is the process of making information and estimates comparable across administrative borders. The degree to which harmonization succeeds depends on many factors, including the conciseness of the definitions, the availability and quality of data, and the methods used to convert an estimate according to a local definition to an estimate according to the reference definition. Harmonization requires the availability and use of common reference definitions and methods for converting from estimates based on national definitions to estimates based on reference ...


Comparison of methods used in European National Forest Inventories for the estimation of volume increment: towards harmonisation

Annals of Forest Science, Vol. 73, No. 4. (2016), pp. 807-821,


[Key message] The increment estimation methods of European NFIs were explored by means of 12 essential NFI features. The results indicate various differences among NFIs within the commonly acknowledged methodological frame. The perspectives for harmonisation at the European level are promising. [Context] The estimation of increment is implemented differently in European National Forest Inventories (NFIs) due to different historical origins of NFIs and sampling designs and field assessments accommodated to country-specific conditions. The aspired harmonisation of increment estimation requires a comparison and an analysis ...


I-Ispra: framework contract for the provision of forest data and services in support to the European Forest Data Centre

Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union (November 2008)


[Excerpt] [...] This service aims to broaden the knowledge base of the JRC's European Forest Data Centre (EFDAC) that was established to supply European Union decision-makers with policy-relevant forest data and information as specified in COM(2006) 302. To this end the tender is targeting the support of the activities of the EFDAC through providing the European Commission with forest-related data and information from a local to European scale and related services, such as reports, studies, workshops and conferences.

The common NFI database

In National forest inventories: contributions to forest biodiversity assessments, Vol. 20 (2011), pp. 99-119,


To test bridging techniques for the harmonized estimation of forest biodiversity indicators for each of the selected essential features a common database was constructed and populated with raw NFI data provided by some of the COST Action E43 participating countries. The database was structured with five tables in a relational database: one table for descriptive plot data, one for tree level data, one for deadwood pieces, one for shrub data and one for ground vegetation. The database was populated with data ...


Harmonization tests

In National forest inventories: contributions to forest biodiversity assessments, Vol. 20 (2011), pp. 121-190,


Chapter 5 reports the results of testing the proposed procedures for harmonizing estimates of indicators for six of the seven essential features of forest biodiversity. Twenty indicators were tested using data from the common database.In general, positive results were obtained for forest categories, forest structure, forest age, deadwood, and naturalness; the results were less positive for ground vegetation because of the considerable differences in definitions and data acquisition methods. Of importance is, that the test focused on assessing harmonization procedures rather ...

Conterminous U.S. and Alaska Forest Type Mapping Using Forest Inventory and Analysis Data

Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing (November 2008), pp. 1379-1388,


Classification-trees were used to model forest type groups and forest types for the conterminous United States and Alaska. The predictor data were a geospatial data set with a spatial resolution of 250 m developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service (USFS). The response data were plot data from the USFS Forest Inventory and Analysis program. Overall accuracies for the conterminous U.S. for the forest type group and forest type were 69 percent (Kappa = 0.66) and 50 percent (Kappa ...

[Excerpt: Preface] Forest inventories throughout the world have evolved gradually over time. The content as well as the concepts and definitions employed are constantly adapted to the users’ needs. Advanced inventory systems have been established in many countries within Europe, as well as outside Europe, as a result of development work spanning several decades, in some cases more than 100 years. [\n] With continuously increasing international agreements and commitments, the need for information has also grown drastically, and reporting requests have become more frequent and the content of the ...
