In the project NEWFOR, financed by the European Territorial Cooperation "Alpine Space", new remote sensing technologies (LiDAR & UAV) for a better mountain forest timber mobilization were investigated. Possibilities and limitations for detecting forest area and forest biomass as well as the assessment of forest structure parameters are shown and discussed.The fully automatic method for forest area delineation can be applied to large areas and fulfils the requirements of an operational application on an international level. For the biomass estimation a regression model was used resulting inbiomass maps withvery high spatial resolution allowing comprehensive forest management for large areas. It could also be shown that multi-temporal LiDAR data is an excellent data source for change detection of forest parameters (i.e. forest area, biomass). Finally an approach for deriving the forest road network including the road properties width, radius and inclination is presented. The investigations are done within several study areas distributed over the entire Alpine region and LiDAR data sets with different properties and demonstrate their practical relevance in forestry.
