The Brazilian Forest Service (Serviço Florestal Brasileiro-SFB) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) recently held a hybrid workshop to support the Brazilian National Forest Inventory (IFN-BR) in its effort of forest classification. IFN-BR is collecting field data across all of Brazil. The workshop collected data in six biomes across Brazil.
Participants, including national experts, collected data using Collect Earth Online (CEO) to support this effort. Technical experts supported by SERVIR-Amazonia provided support as needed before and during the workshop.
The workshop was focused on improving planning, results analysis, and quality control to reduce the cost of fieldwork and ensure the field team’s safety.
