Abstract

The spectral information of a Landsat TM image has been used to stratify through not supervised clustering the ground inventoried area of the forests of the Council of Oroquieta-Erviti, in the west part of the beech forests in the Autonomous Community of Navarra (Spain). The obtained strata are significantly different for the dasometric values of the ground pltos in them included. The results show that Landsat TM information is a tool of great interest for the forest inventory stratification.
