This site contains vegetation maps for regions across the world. The maps are categorized by continent or region and then broken down into country and some are broken into sections within a particular country. Some maps are created from Geographic Information Systems (GIS) while some are vegetation indices as calculated from remotely sensed data. Some are the result of vegetation analyses or inventories ... Full description.
