Description: The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry Resource Assessment office has been cooperating with both the Forest Service's FIA and Natural Resource Conservation Services's NRI inventory programs in researching methods to more tightly integrate the two programs. One aspect of these ongoing efforts has been to develop a prototype intranet application to provide interactive, map-based access to "raw" FIA and NRI plot data. The application runs on a password-protected web site at http://www.ra.dnr.state.mn.us/plotview . Products retrievable for any given plot on the interactive map include scanned aerial photographs, scanned field plot sheets, scanned USGS quad maps, digital ortho quad photography, and, in the case of the NRI program, database outputs of the raw data collected for the plot. All software driving the interface is freely distributable under open source licenses.
