ForestView - an Interactive Forest Cooperative Stand Assessment (CSA) Mapping Application from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
ForestView provides interactive map-based access to the DNR Forestry Cooperative Stand Assessment (CSA) database. This database contains detailed forest inventory information on over 5 million acres of Minnesota state- and county-owned lands.|
CSA maps the boundaries and tabulates the contents of all forest stands 5 acres and larger on state-owned land. Stand boundaries are drawn by interpretation of aerial photographs. All other stand data are collected in the field on plots established within each stand; boundaries may be redrawn at the time of field data collection.
Forest treatments such as cutting, thinning, planting or seeding alters the stand's attributes. Local forest managers submit their alterations to the CSA database on a regular schedule so that the entire database remains current.
ForestView+ - Displays CSA data on top of user-selectable Landsat satellite imagery. These images enable users to visually extend information from inventoried state lands to surrounding, uninventoried lands; providing a complete picture of the landscape.
ForestView - Provides access to CSA data only. Suited to users of older operating systems (eg., Windows 3.1) and/or older web browsers (eg., versions of Netscape prior to 3.0).
