The FCT Task focuses on demonstrating through coordinated Earth Observations data acquisitions and the development of standardised processing and analytical techniques by researchers in different countries under what are called 'National Demonstrator' programs that remotely sensed products can provide the information needed for national forest inventories and UNFCCC reporting. In this paper the results of research involving the mapping of forest extent and land cover change in Tasmania and forest degradation in Columbia are presented. © 2012 IEEE.
