Abstract

The USDA Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data are widely used throughtout 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 resources 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.
