Northern Region (Region 1) Geospatial Data

    The Northern Region (R1) of the U.S. Forest Service uses ArcGIS Online to share maps, data, and applications for use by other federal agencies, partners, and the public. This gallery displays some of the web map applications developed by the Region and our Forests.

    Pacific Northwest Region (Region 6) Geospatial Data

      The Pacific Northwest Region (Region 6) of the US Forest Service contains 17 National Forests, two National Scenic Areas, a National Grassland, and two National Volcanic Monuments, all within the States of Oregon and Washington. These national forests provide timber for people, forage for cattle and wildlife, habitat for fish, plants, and animals, and some of the finest recreation lands in the country. This database contains links to the Pacific Northwest Forests with GIS data currently available online.

      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.

        Genes of viral origin in the Microplitis demolitor genome

          *Microplitis demolitor* (Hymenoptera: Braconidae) is a parasitoid used as a biological control agent to control larval-stage Lepidoptera and serves as a model for studying the function and evolution of symbiotic viruses in the genus Bracovirus. Using RNA-Seq data for this species and manual annotation of genes of viral origin, we annotated a high-quality gene set including 171 virus-derived protein-coding genes.

            Integrated Farm System Model (IFSM)

              The Integrated Farm System Model (IFSM) is a process-based simulation of dairy, beef, and crop farming systems. This whole farm model provides a tool for evaluating the long term performance, economics, and environmental impacts of production systems over many years of weather.
