    Description

    This publication is a simplified version of the Forest Inventory and Analysis Data Base (FIADB) for users who do not need to compute sampling errors and may find the FIADB unnecessarily complex. Possible users include GIS specialists who may be interested only in identifying and retrieving geographic information and per acre values for the set of plots used in producing forest statistics for a state report. Application developers and modelers may also find FIADB-Lite useful. In FIADB-Lite, the set of plots used in producing forest statistics for a state report can be identified by a single variable, and data processing has been simplified by combining information found in three tables into a single table.
