Remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) techniques provide efficient tools for resource management. In this paper, these techniques are applied for resource management of country parks in Hong Kong. A spatial database is developed integrating SPOT HRV multispectral data, topographic data, hill fire records and thematic maps. Vegetation resources are mapped based on multidate SPOT and DEM data. Integrated with hill fire records, the impact of hill fire on vegetation resources is assessed. It is found that grass is the major vegetation burnt in country parks.
