Client(s): Dr. Kenneth W. Tate (Specialist) and Dr. Leslie Roche (Post-Doctoral Researcher)
Request: Summarized historic and current climate data within United State Forest Service (USFS) grazing allotments and within 850 plots spread across these allotments.
Outcome: IGIS provided the client with a database that summarized 30 years of monthly climatic data, including total precipitation, minimum and maximum temperature, and snowpack. The data was delivered to the client as personal geodatabase (useable in MS Access) for further analysis. The database contained two main tables, one table summarizing the climatic variables for each plot and another table summarizing the climatic variables for each Allotment.
