FIAMODEL: A New Link for Geographic Analyses of Inventory Data
Abstract:The USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data are widely used throughout the United States for analyses of forest status and trends, landscape-level forest composition, and other forest characteristics. A new software product, FIAMODEL, is available for analyzing FIA data within the ArcView® (ESRI, Inc.) geographic information system. The software allows linkages with other natural resource information, such as watershed boundaries or soil maps, in a format widely used by natural resource organizations, which allows organizations to analyze FIA data in a spatial context with little new investment in hardware or training.
