Mapping & Reporting
Data and Application Development
In addition to maintaining a national IDS spatial database, the GIS and Spatial Analysis program frequently develops or sponsors the construction of datasets that aid FHP Regions and Field Office personnel in conducting assessments of forest health. Examples of these data include the production of GIS layers depicting forest attributes, such as basal area (BA) (done in collaboration with FHAAST’s Remote Sensing and Image Analysis program, and the development of a soil drainage and productivity index for determining the relative amount of water and nutrients available to plants.
With the growing need to conduct complex spatial analysis and manage large datasets, the GIS and Spatial Analysis program has developed applications to aid in data management, analysis, and distribution.
