    Description

    Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA), a national program of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture conducts and maintains comprehensive inventories of the forest resources in the United States. The Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act (RPA) of 1974 mandates a comprehensive assessment of past trends, current status, and the future potential of forest resources across the United States. Data for the RPA represent the highest level of aggregation of timberland and forest land statistics generated by the FIA program. This article describes several forest attributes that make up the FIA 2002 RPA national map atlas series and presents several of the maps. The maps are a crucial tool for visualizing, analyzing, and presenting forest resource information essential to national and regional forest planning and policymaking.
