Forest Health Aerial Overview - 50k


Data Identification
Abstract: This feature delineates forest health disturbances which includes Abiotic and Biotic forest health agents in the Yukon at a scale of 1:100,000. It is a management level forest health overview survey (as opposed to an operational level) - meaning that analysis and mapping are most effective close to the 1:100,000 scale and not larger. This Forest Health Overview surveys has been completed in various stages: 1 Starting with mapping the distrubance type, and severity from the Air using Fix wing aircraft on to hardcopy 1:100,000 scale maps2 Transfering the Data to a clean Mylar for scanning and digitizing3 Scanning and digitizing and populate data into GIS spatial database
Purpose: The Government of Yukon’s Forest Management branch (FMB) manages and monitors Yukon forests for sustainability and reports on forest health which is a major component of forest management. The Forest Resources Act (FRA) supports forest health monitoring and recognizes that the long-term health of Yukon’s forests must be maintained and protected for the benefit of Yukon people and future generations. Aerial overview surveys are the primary tool for monitoring forest health in Yukon. This set of Forest Health Aerial Survey spatial data represents the results of monitoring Yukon’s forests via fixed wing airplane throughout Yukon over a series of five monitoring zones (established in 2009) on a rotational basis. On-the-ground checks are also used to confirm the type of disturbance recorded.
