Development of forest resources information system using forest type map and GIS
Yun-Kyoung Kim and Woo-Kyun Lee
 
ABSTRACT : In this study, forest resources information system based on geographic information system was developed for the large-area forest management plannmg cons1denng the real forest type of forest type map. Basic data for forest resources information system were prepared by digitizing forest type map, soil type map, topographic map and other thematic maps which are needed for forest resources management. Data for terrain analysis and flow
accumulation were prepared using Digital Elevation Model(DEM). An user interface menu was designed for users to easily use data or informations and query box was provided to support decision-making. The forest resources information system developed in this study can be helpful for planning large-area forest management which is based on real forest type.

Key words : forest resources information system, geographic information system, forest type map
