    Description

    A vital step in any ongoing horizon scanning process is periodically analyzing the growing database of scanning hits to identify emerging issues, provide insight into possible implications of these issues, and generate foresight. This paper is a preliminary and partial effort to "connect the dots" in the Forest Futures Horizon Scanning system. We examine the descriptive tags associated with each scanning hit as a way to characterize the database, and then describe several themes that have emerged from multiple scanning hits.
