    Description

    A partnership of state and federal agencies and private organizations is developing advanced spatial analysis techniques applied for conservation and restoration of forested wetlands. The project goal is to develop an application to assist decisionmakers in defining the eligibility of land sites for entry in the Wetland Reserve Program (WRP) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The WRP is one of the most successful programs in restoring wetlands on marginal agriculture lands. For this effort, three 7.5-minute quadrangles in Louisiana (Indian Lake, Newlight, and Saranac) were used as a pilot area. A data set of thematic and remotely sensed data was collected and organized inside a geographic information system (GIS) ArcView project. By using the ArcView's internal scripting language (Avenue), the project has been customized for WRP needs. Procedures that make easier data display and analysis operations were then implemented.
