    Description

    Software tools for landscape analyses--including FVS model extensions, and a number of FVS-related pre- and post-processing “tools”--are presented, using an analysis in the Red River Watershed, Nez Perce National Forest as an example. We present (1) a discussion of pre-simulation data analysis; (2) the Physiographic Information Extraction System (PIES), a tool that can improve the quality of stand level input-data prior to its use in FVS simulations; and (3) tools for output-data spatial analysis, including the Event Monitor ArcView Project (FVS-EMAP), the Westwide Pine Beetle Model mapping tools, and EnVision.
