Mr. John Gilbert,  Research Associate, Longleaf Pine Stand Dynamics Lab, Auburn University School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences will present
Online Mapping and Spatial Resources for the Private Forest Landowner

A map is one of the most important tools a rural or urban forest landowner needs for planning and management especially when planning for multiple uses.  This presentation highlights a booklet tutorial with examples of online spatial resources to help landowners and conservation professionals make maps and utilize aerial photography, topographic layers, and soils information. The booklet is designed for beginners and provides keywords, homepage links, tutorial information, examples, and screenshots for online programs like the USDA/NRCS Web Soil Survey, Google Earth, Alabama Historic Aerial Photo Archive, USDA/NRCS Geospatial Data Gateway, and USDA National Agroforestry Center CanVIS.

The booklet can be downloaded for free from this link http://www.lpsdl.auburn.edu/pdfs/MappingBook_FINAL.pdf
