Remote Sensing and Geo-Spatial Applications
Mountain Pine Beetle Impact Mapping
A series of thematic maps have been produced to support FFT in the identification of areas with high potential for application of FFT activities, also known as the FFT footprint. These maps show MPB impact (attack status and severity) together with other key information for 2007 and 2008. Attack status information for the 2008 update is based upon new improved remote sensing change detection technology, for which an overview has been provided.
These maps are cut to management unit boundaries and consist of information that would be most useful to FFT staff and recipient agreement holders (RAHs) based on feedback received: attack status, attack intensity, pine age, pine density and site productivity.
