Part 1Download Software and Data
Download My World GIS software, a Maine Forest project file, and Forest Inventory Growth (FIG) and Forest Inventory Analysis (FIA) data from Maine.
Open the FIG Dataset with Excel and create a pie chart to investigate biodiversity of tree species.
Launch My World and open the Maine Forest Project File. Practice working with My World GIS software. Last, import Auburn Forest Inventory Analysis (FIA) data as a new layer.
Symbolize the twenty FIA Plots. Then subset the FIA Plot data to create a new layer for Plot #2.
Analyze and compare data from two forest plots in the Auburn Woods (FIA Plot #2 to FIG Plot). Then compare the single plot to the the larger set of plots from the Auburn Woods.
Compare the biodiversity of two plots from two different regions of Maine and consider environmental conditions that influence biodiversity.
