    Description

    The Southern On Line Estimator (SOLE) is an Internet-based Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) data analysis tool. SOLE is based on data downloaded from the publicly available FIA database (FIADB) and summarized by plot condition. The tasks of downloading, processing, and summarizing FIADB data require specialized expertise in inventory theory and data manipulation. The FIADB is an important FIA product that should be made as easy to use and as error free as possible. Some of the errors that have been found in the FIADB are outlined here along with the incremental steps made toward improving it over the past year.
