Environment and Forest

The data refers to details of simplified error matrix. It has been prepared by grouping land use classes into 'forest' and 'non-forest'. This is done by combining VDF, MDF and OF into one class viz. 'forest' and scrub and non-forest classes into 'non-forest'.
The data refers to State/UT-wise summary of growing stock in forests. It provides details regarding volume of growing stock and recorded forest area.
The data refers to state-wise details of recorded forest area (in square km). Recorded Forest Area refers to all the geographic areas recorded as 'Forests' in government records. It consists of Reserved Forests and Protected Forests which have been constituted under the provisions of the Indian Forest Act, 1927.
The data refers to details of State/UT-wise tree cover estimates. Tree cover comprises of tree patches outside the recorded forest area exclusive of forest cover and less than the minimum mappabe area (1 ha).
The data refers to details of physiographic zone-wise volume of growing stock (m. cum). Growing Stock refers to the sum (by number or volume) of all the trees growing/living in the forest or a specified part of it.
Data refers to details of physio-graphic zone-wise tree cover estimate. Tree cover comprises of tree patches outside the recorded forest area exclusive of forest cover and less than the minimum mappabe area (1 ha).
The data refers to the area of forest and tree cover. Forest Cover refers to all lands more than one hectare in area, with a tree canopy density of more than 10 percent irrespective of ownership and legal status. Such lands may not necessarily be a recorded forest area. It also includes orchards, bamboo and palm. Tree cover comprises of tree patches outside the recorded forest area exclusive of forest cover and less than the minimum mappabe area (1 ha).
Details on District-wise forest cover for States/Uts. Forest Cover refers to all lands more than one hectare in area, with a tree canopy density of more than 10 percent irrespective of ownership and legal status. Such lands may not necessarily be a recorded forest area. It also includes orchards, bamboo and palm.
The data refers to States/UTs-wise details of land usage pattern. It provides details of land use (area and percentage) under total geographical area, reporting area for land utilization, forests, not available for cultivation, permanent pastures and other grazing lands, land under miscellaneous tree crops & groves, culturable wasteland, fallow lands other than current fallows, current fallows and net area sown.
The data refers to forest cover in different altitude zones for the States/UTs of India. Digital Elevation Model from data of Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (2006) was generated to determine forest cover in different altitude zones in all the States and UTs.The Digital Elevation Model (DEM) used in the analysis has a resolution of 90m, which is appropriate for national/sub-national level information of this kind.
