Forest Insect & Disease Aerial Survey Data
User-specified 2008 100K quad maps for the Pacific Northwest Region can also be created interactively at the FHP geospatial portal.
These maps are based on cooperative aerial surveys conducted by Forest Health Protection staffs of the Oregon Department of Forestry, Washington Department of Natural Resources, and the USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Region.
Each map is a 1 to 2 MB pdf file. These files are best viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 6.0. These files will take anywhere from 1-2 minutes to completely load to your screen (the screen will be blank until it downloads completely). Your other option is to save the file to your local disk and view/use/print it from there. Zoom views can be printed on 8.5 x 11 printers, while full maps are best printed at 36" x 36" on a full scale plotter. View suggestions for using pdf files.
Warning! Due to problems with our national Forest Service webserver, large .pdf or .zip files (such as most map files on this page) may not load correctly. If you encounter this problem, consider trying again later (the problem is intermittent), or during non-business hours. You can also contact Julie Johnson or Kathy Sheehan to receive specific files by email. We encourage Forest Service users who encounter problems to submit tickets to EUSC to raise the visibility of this problem.

Similar aerial survey maps are now available online for parts of the Rocky Mountains (Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, and parts of Wyoming and South Dakota) and the Lake States (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri). Access much of this data interactively at the new FHP Geospatial Portal.
Our Canadian colleagues with the British Columbia Ministry of Forests and Range have aerial survey information available online in the form of reports, maps, and tables.
