November 4, 2015 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm America/New York Timezone

The Forest Service Northeastern Area will be hosting a webinar featuring the Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) Data Dashboard on Wednesday, November 4th, from 11:00 AM – noon (EST), presented by Scott Pugh (USFS Northern Research Station, FIA).  Please feel free to share this announcement with others in your agency and beyond:

Using Tableau Business Analytics software, the folks at FIA have created Dashboards that allow users to more easily access, explore, and visualize FIA data and findings.  The visual (a picture is worth a thousand words) and interactive nature of Dashboards provides a depth of delivery that cannot be matched by current hard copy or pdf publications.  The Dashboard can deliver data similar to that in FIA’s typical annual pdf reports, but with far more depth and customizability.  Join us for this webinar as we take the Data Dashboard for a test drive!
