FSGeodata Clearinghouse

    The USDA Forest Service Geodata Clearinghouse is an online collection of digital data related to forest resources. Through the Clearinghouse you can find datasets related to forests and grasslands, including boundaries and ownership, natural resources, roads and trails, as well as datasets related to State and private forested areas, including insect and disease threat and surface water importance. You can also find downloadable map products, raster data, and links to other sources of forest resource information.

    Wind Erosion Prediction System (WEPS)

      This site provides access to the WEPS software version used for official purposes by NRCS field offices and Technical Service providers. NRCS developed and maintains the components of the WEPS Databases and information on this site. The USDA-Agricultural Research Service is the lead agency for developing the science in the WEPS model and the model interface. WEPS predicts many forms of soil erosion by wind such as saltation-creep and suspension including PM-10.

              Forest Health Protection Mapping and Reporting

                Welcome to the US Forest Service, forest insect and disease reporting portal. The applications below access a myriad of state, county and local level forest insect and disease conditions data. In addition we offer a window into near real time forest disturbance information collected from space. Data input applications are restricted to cooperators with specific training and expertise.

                USDA Forest Service Remote Sensing Applications Center and Geospatial Technology and Applications Center

                  The Forest Service's Remote Sensing Applications Center (RSAC) is in Salt Lake City, Utah, co-located with the agency's Geospatial Service and Technology Center. Guided by national steering committees and field sponsors, RSAC provides national assistance to agency field units in applying the most advanced geospatial technology toward improved monitoring and mapping of natural resources. RSAC's principal goal is to develop and implement less costly ways for the Forest Service to obtain needed forest resource information.
