Data and Application Development

In addition to maintaining a national IDS spatial database, Forest Health Assessment and Applied Sciences Team (FHAAST) frequently develops or sponsors the construction of datasets that aid Forest Health Protection (FHP) Regions and Field Office personnel in conducting assessments of forest health.

With the growing need to conduct complex spatial analysis and manage large datasets, FHAAST has developed applications to aid in data management, analysis, and distribution.
