LMS 1.x

LMS - Version 1.x

The first version of LMS was written as a proof of concept for linking growth and yield models together with visualization and other analytical tools.
LMS integrates several separate programs that make growth projections, produce graphical and tabular displays, store inventory information and connect those diverse programs into a cohesive system.
Stand Projection: Stand projection in LMS is accomplished by the use of external growth models. LMS 1.x used are FVS (all variants) and ORGANON (SWO 4.3, 4.4; WWV 1.3, 1.4).
Stand Visualizations: Stand visualization can be used to examine inventory information in new ways. It can be useful for finding errors in data, communicating between disciplines, or as an alternative way to vew inventory information. LMS uses the Stand Visualization System (SVS) for stand visualization.
Treating Stands: Stand treatments include thinning to target BA, Percent, SDI, and TPA; from Above, Below, or Proportional; with Species Selection (Include or Exclude), Diameter Limits, and the ability to add new tree records by planting or ingrowth.
Landscape Visualizations: Landscape visualization in LMS was done using UVIEW from the UTOOLS Watershed Analysis Package.
Other Outputs: Projected inventory information can be presented to the user in a variety of tables and charts. The tables can be viewed in a text editor, spreadsheet, or saved to a file for subsequent analysis.
