A public version of the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) Ready Database (FVSRDB) is available containing attributes for FVS simulations. The Public FVSRDB includes plot level data for all FVS variants nationwide. All data were collected from the LANDFIRE (LF) Reference Database (LFRDB) and contain no proprietary and/or sensitive information.
Data archived in the Public FVSRDB includes predefined input tables used for initializing stand/plot information (StandInit and TreeInit tables). More detailed descriptions and input data requirements can be found in Sections 3.3 and 4.2 of the Essential FVS Guide.
Consult the table lutVisitsSourceID in the LFRDB regarding data sources.
