Additional Information

Purpose

The Ministries and resource developers will want the active sample locations to determine where there are recognized feature conflicts with any resource development. PSPs data was created to provide information on rates of growth of existing forest, mortality, and changes in stand structure from stand establishment to maturity or cutting age. PSP data is also required to develop yield tables and to provide the basic information necessary for the development and calibration of growth and yield models.

Lineage Statement

Originally the growth and yield data were collected on field forms and then key punched into the computer in Standard Edit Format (ASCII flat file). Currently the data is collected from the field using Handheld computer, validated using Sample Plot Tools and loaded to the GYS Oracle database.
