Description: Setting Analyst is an ArcView extension that facilitates practical harvest planning for ground-based systems. By modeling the travel patterns of ground-based machines, it compares different harvesting settings based on projected average skidding distance, logging costs, and site disturbance levels. Setting Analyst uses information commonly available to consulting foresters, timber buyers, or loggers for harvests on non-industrial private forest timber sales (NIPF). We discuss the techniques, illustrate its practical applications, and compare logging plans generated with Setting Analyst on a recently harvested site.
