Sample ForestNow maps
Full wall-to-wall coverage of area based tree-metric data such as average height, DBH, density, and volume.
Go beyond a simple stand level estimate by gaining within-stand perspective.
Localized reference data such as plots or previous inventory data depending on the level of accuracy required may be needed.
Expanded insight into the area-based tree-metric data by drilling down into a treelist format to give users a complete tree size profile.
This treelist format can be summarize by existing stand, strata or parcel boundaries.
New boundaries can also be manually drawn or auto-delineated based on species and area-based metrics in the two products listed above
