[Info Docket]  Esri and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service announce the publication of Engagement Portfolio, a gallery of maps and apps that gives everyone access to US forestry data.

The portfolio of maps and analysis tools opens the Forest Service’s rich content to a broad spectrum of users, engaging everyone from forestry professionals to conservation-minded laypeople.

Engagement Portfolio opens up the Forestry Inventory and Analysis (FIA) database, a trove of detailed information on the nation’s forest ecosystems, which the Forest Service has maintained for almost a century.

A large-scale map and a chart-populated perspective of the nation’s forests enable forest managers and companies that rely on forest products to strategically plan. In addition, story maps and other interactive tools teach the public about forestry’s vital role in sustaining the earth’s health.
