Indicator calculations not provided by AIM databases:

There are many more possible AIM indicators than those that are automatically provided by the TerrADat and LMF databases.  For instance, folks are often interested in cover of specific plant species or groups.  Can’t find what you are looking for?  We can help!  Here is an example product.

Percentage of the resource in a given condition (Weighted analysis) — Table:

Summaries of resource conditions across an area are often needed to support management decision-making.  A weighted analysis provides an accurate estimate of the percentage or proportion of the resource in a given condition.  Each analysis is based on your local objectives and reporting units and uses your AIM data.  For more about weighted analyses including when to use them see Analysis Terms and Concepts. Here is an example product in the form of a table that shows the percentages.

Percentage of the resource in a given condition (Weighted analysis) — Detailed Report:

Summaries of resource conditions across an area are often needed to support management decision-making.  A weighted analysis provides an accurate estimate of the percentage or proportion of the resource in a given condition.  Each analysis is based on your local objectives and reporting units and uses your AIM data.  For more about weighted analyses including when to use them see Analysis Terms and Concepts.  Here is an example product in the form of a detailed report (download this document and then open in Chrome). The report includes tables, graphs, maps and contextual information for your weighted analysis.

Map of whether objectives have been achieved:

Mapping whether objectives have been achieved at each of your plots can be a useful visualization and help land managers determine where there might be problems. Here is an example product.

Frequency distributions for setting benchmarks:

Frequency distributions are a great way to visualize the spread of indicator values you have across your landscape.  They can provide helpful context for setting benchmarks for your area. The horizontal axis is different ranges of indicator values, and the vertical axis is a count of the number of plots that fall into each range (also known as frequency).  Here is an example product.

 

 

 

Box plots for setting benchmarks:

Box plots are another great way to visualize the spread of AIM indicator values in your area. They provide helpful context for setting benchmarks. The indicator value is on the vertical axis, and the horizontal axis can contain related indicators or different groups of plots. Box plots have several components to them:

  • The line across the middle of the box: This is the median indicator value for sites in the analysis area.  Half of the monitoring sites have values above this, half of the sites have values below it.
  • The top of the box: A quarter of the monitoring sites have values above this, and three quarters are below
  • The bottom of the box: A quarter of the monitoring istes have values below this, and three quarters are above
  • The lines coming out of the box: The ends of these more or less represent the range of indicator values
  • Dots (only on some boxes): These represent extreme or outlier values of the indicator
