School Location

This map show the best location for a school indicated by the bright red/pink color. This was determined based on several factors including the distance to recreation center, slope, distance to other schools, and landuse.

This type of map will be very useful in my future efforts to establish camping spots along the French Broad River.

Timber Harvesting

The map below represent the area of land that is available for timber harvesting in Tongass National Forest. The areas that are excluded are Goshawk habitat and stream buffers. The stream buffers are 50 and 100 meters and the Goshawk buffer is 800 meters. This still leaves quite a bit of harvestable land.
