The NFI has become an instrument that can provide extensive information with respect to the Swiss forest. By applying environmental statistical methods and environmental data processing using the existing NFI data and appropriate links with other databases, the NFI offers an important contribution to environmental analysis. The NFI satisfies, therefore, all prerequisites to become a powerful national forest information and communication system, which provides a sound information background for decision makers in the forestry, environmental and political sector.
