This Project’s primary objective was to provide a current forest classification done to AVI [v2.2] specifications in digital format for Forest Management Unit P9.

The Project was initiated in early 2000. Black and white 1:20,000 infrared aerial photography was acquired in the Summer of 2000. In October 2000, the false colour infrared 1:20,000 & the black and white 1:60,000 for the FMU was completed.

The AVI classification and fieldwork began in the Winter of 2001 and was completed in November 2001. The 1:20,000 B& W Program was initiated in the Summer of 2000 and completed the following Summer of 2001.

Final digital processing and map production was completed in August 2002.

The initial P9 delivery to ASRD – RDD was February of 2003 and the final approval for the P9 AVI product obtained in January of 2005.

Final results of the Project are summarized in a forty-one page report entitled "Alberta Vegetation Inventory (AVI 2.2) For: Forest Management Unit P9", prepared by Greenlink Forestry Inc., and dated January 2005.
