Abstract

Geographic Information System (GIS)-based mapping and decision support systems use in forestry in China is still relatively limited, especially the large-scale mapping and specialized software development. However this application area has witnessed a growth in its market from various customers. This research has designed and implemented a new Forest Form Mapping System for China’s Forest Resources, as well as a platform for research, education and decision support to achieve the goal of sustainable environmental management. The project has demonstrated how GPS data and data from the second national forest survey of China can be integrated, visualized, and reported in a.NET and ArcEngine- based system. Given its flexible architecture and user friendly interface, it is suitable for a variety of applications in forest resource management.
