Oregon’s Forest Atlas 2010 online edition

Note: The Oregon Forest Atlas 2010 is online. Very interesting, very colorful maps. And some data to go along with them. Thanks to JG for the tip.

The Oregon Forest Atlas project [here] was developed in 2010 to provide public members with a broader understanding of Oregon’s forests using contemporary technology. Maps developed for the Forest Atlas use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) data obtained by the U.S. Forest Service PNW Research Station, data from Oregon State University and data gathered and maintained by the Oregon Department of Forestry.

Maps include:

MODIS Satellite Images of Oregon

Oregon Forestland Generalized Geology

Oregon Forestland Historic Vegetation - 1850

Oregon: Generalized Land Cover

Oregon Land Use

Oregon: Ecological Systems Habitat Types

Oregon Forestland - All Sources

Major Land Resource Areas

This map depicts Oregon’s forest coverage – 30,472,000 acres – expressed by whether the landowner is the federal government, State of Oregon, tribal governments, family/small woodland owners or private industrial timber producers. Data sources are the U.S. Forest Service PNW Research Station in Corvallis, the Oregon Institute for Natural Resources at Oregon State University and the Oregon Department of Forestry.

The Oregon Forest Atlas is intended to serve as an education and research tool to improve the understanding of public members regarding the attributes of among Oregon’s greatest natural resource assets, our forests.

Data for the Forest Atlas was compiled by staff with the Oregon Department of Forestry in 2010 using data generated by the U.S. Forest Service PNW Research Station in Corvallis, Oregon State University and the Oregon Department of Forestry.
