Forest Inventory Ground Plots - Public Access

Forest Inventory Ground Plots - Public Access The Forest Analysis and Inventory Branch (FAIB) is responsible for coordinating and managing data collection and analyses from a range of different ground sampling programs that collect data on ground plots. This layer shows ground plots from the PSP and VRI programs. **Vegetation Resource Inventory (VRI):** ground samples primarily used to audit and verify key inventory attributes estimated during photo interpretation. These samples are not protected because they will not be revisited. **Permanent Sample Plots (PSP):** subjectively located fixed-area permanent plots, valued for their long-term re-measurement data to support development of growth-and-yield models in unmanaged stands across a range of stand and ecosystem types. Actual GPS coordinates are provided as protection is necessary. - Active PSPs = plot and buffer are protected from harvesting - Inactive PSPs = not protected from harvesting 2024-02-21 Government of British Columbia Marc.Rousseau@gov.bc.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyForest inventoryGround PlotsISMCInventory Sample ManagementPSPVRIgrowth and yield sampleGovernment information Original metadata (https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca)HTML https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca/dataset/forest-inventory-ground-plots-public-access Download KML Ground Overlay fileKML https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/kml/geo/layers/WHSE_FOREST_VEGETATION.ISMC_FOREST_INVENTORY_SITES_SV_loader.kml Forest Inventory Ground Plots - Public AccessWMS https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/geo/pub/WHSE_FOREST_VEGETATION.ISMC_FOREST_INVENTORY_SITES_SV/ows?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&layers=pub:WHSE_FOREST_VEGETATION.ISMC_FOREST_INVENTORY_SITES_SV&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain Forest Inventory Ground Plots - Public AccessWMS https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/geo/pub/WHSE_FOREST_VEGETATION.ISMC_FOREST_INVENTORY_SITES_SV/ows?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&layers=pub:WHSE_FOREST_VEGETATION.ISMC_FOREST_INVENTORY_SITES_SV&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain
