Abstract : The objective of this paper is to evaluate the utilization of remotely sensed orbital data for forestry inventory. The study area (approximately 491,100 ha) encompasses the municipalities of Ribeirao Preto, Altinopolis, Cravinhos, Serra Azul, Luis Antonio, Sao Simao, Santa Rita do Passa Quatro and channels 5 and 7, scale 1:250,000 and CCTs. Visual interpretation of the imagery reforested with Pinus and Eucalyptus within the area under study. The results obtained show that LANDSAT data can be used efficiently in forestry inventroy studies.
