GIS and Remote Sensing:

There is an extensive GIS database set up for the John Prince Research Forest at UNBC. The database is housed in the GIS and Remote Sensing Lab, and is made up of mostly Arc/Info, Landsat TM7 images, and aerial photography. A number of coverages can be downloaded from this site [scroll down to see download list]. The *.e00 files are Arc/Info Export files that can be imported into Arc/Info directly, the *.tif files are simple images included to help you find the most helpful coverages to download.

*Note: The *.gif files show only a few different aspects of their respective coverage.
