Landsat Sets the Standard for Maps of World's Forests. 06.18.12. NASA's Earth-observing fleet of satellites provides a worldwide and unbiased view with standardized scientific data -- information crucial for tracking the health of the world's forests. Countries like Brazil are using data from NASA satellites to track and measure their forests. Maps of local and regional forest canopy have been produced before, but the new map is the first that spans the entire globe using one uniform method. The map was based on data collected by NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites, along with the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite, or ICESat

NASA/Forest Service Maps Aid Fire Recovery. Black-backed woodpeckers are among the species that can thrive on burned woodlands. The 2013 Rim fire in and near Yosemite National Park, California, was the third largest in the state's history, burning more than 250,000 acres. Almost two years later, forest restoration efforts are still ongoing NASA, Forest Service Partnership Expands Active Fire Mapping Capabilities. A new Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS) focused on the US and Canada provides expanded capabilities including additional map layers, ownership boundaries, and daily fire dangers. By any measure, the 2020 wildfire season saw extreme fire activity in. This data set provides forest age map products at 1-km resolution for Canada and the United States (U.S.A.).

Forest Canopy Height Using a combination of NASA satellite images and laser data, scientists have produced a first-of-its-kind map that details the height of the world's forests. The map may help scientists build an inventory of how much of the carbon dioxide people release by burning fossil fuels gets stored by trees around the world The result was a series of maps, surveyed for each forest district. In the first editions, we can find maps crafted at different scales (e.g. 1:50 000, 1: 20 000, 1: 25 000). Later on (after 1900), the map sheets scale was standardized to 1: 25 000. Each sheet was accompanied by a register with information regarding the forest parcels Forest Fires near Fairbanks, AK. Two large wildfires were burning south of Fairbanks, Alaska, on June 24, when this true-color image of the region was acquired by the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS).
