Description: This article describes updates on the development of various applications for the Hypermaps applications and the newest versions of the forest inventory data display tool, Interactive Fast Online Reports and Maps (InFORM). The development of InFORM applications is cosponsored by the University of Georgia, Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources; the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture's Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) unit; Georgia Forestry Commission; and National Commission on Science for Sustainable Forestry. InFORM provides an engaging and highly interactive interface, displays spatial information rapidly, obtains basic forest inventory summary data, and creates charts and tables describing the FIA inventory. Recent updates also make InFORM highly relevant for developing markets in carbon trading. InFORM fills the gap in public communication between the layman and the Geographic Information System professional by giving entry-level online access of spatial inventory data to users who are unable to navigate through other high-end, but less friendly, applications. In addition to being used as an Internet-based system, InFORM can also be used as a set of native applications on workstations and laptops.
