    Mapping forests and single tree species using high resolution imagery is a common practice in the field of forest management. The question arises if medium resolution and freely available data - like Sentinel-2 - can compete with costly commercial data. This talk will provide an overview of the workflow and steps that were performed to achieve high accuracy data, especially by classifying tree types for a detailed level of complexity.
