An approach to forest state classification on the basis of multi-spectral space images is considered. The approach is based on the data fusion method and synergism principle. The program application of the approach involves geoinformation technologies. A classification algorithm based on a proposed criterion of the information content of spectral bands is developed. Some results of experimental investigations of the metod proposed are presented.
