Core Science Analytics and Synthesis - USGS-NPS Vegetation Characterization Program
The database prepared for the USGS-NPS Vegetation Characterization Program is posted in the form of a zipped file that can be opened on your personnel computer and easily extracted.
After downloading the zipped file (the file is called Plots_v32_ac2010.zip), extract all the files from the zipped file into a directory on your computer. For instructions on how to get started with the PLOTS database, simply refer to the PDF manual that comes as part of the zipped file.
For help, there is interactive documentation within the help menu.
If you have any difficulty with the installation of this software, please contact Mike Mulligan at USGS CSS CSAS (303) 202-4242 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Tammy Cook with NPS at (970) 267-7201 or Tammy_Cook@nps.gov.
Comments and suggestions about its operation, use and desired capabilities are welcomed. Please send such comments to Tammy Cook with NPS ( Tammy_Cook@nps.gov) with a cc: to Mike Mulligan (email@example.com).
Finally, for frequent users of the PLOTS database, we have set up a listserve to help connect other users and quickly get advice and hear about other data management tools available to help supplement PLOTS. To sign up for the listserve, go to http://lists.natureserve.org/mailman/listinfo/vegplots.
