LMS Analyst for ArcGIS 8.3

Forest stand boundaries on an analytically hillshaded digital elevation model arrows indicate calculated mean aspect per stand
Red lines indicate forest stand boundaries on an analytically hill-shaded digital elevation model. The green arrows indicate calculated mean aspect per stand.

The LMS Analyst extension was created to update polygon-level landform attributes for forest stands. The analyst computes mean elevation, slope, and aspect on a stand-by-stand basis. The analyst needs an ArcInfo polygon coverage or ArcView shapefile representing forest stands (or other polygons) as well as an ArcInfo format grid representing elevation (or other Z-value).

Caveat: Needs ArcGIS 8.3, Spatial Analyst Extension, Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 and the ArcGIS 8.3 .NET Developer Kit

What is LMS Analyst?

LMS Analyst is an ESRI® ArcGIS 8.3 Extension written in VB.NET 2003 to help foresters, forest engineers and GIS professionals with spatial analysis that complements the Landscape Management System (LMS) LMS Analyst was developed by Luke Rogers of the University of Washington's Rural Technology Initiative to help small forest land owners with forest management. Portions of the code are adapted from LMS Analyst for ArcView® 3.x written by Phil Hurvitz.

What does LMS Analyst do?

Currently LMS Analyst performs the following functions:

• Calculates Zonal Topography for a polygon theme based on an elevation GRID®
o Zonal Elevation (mean, min, and max)
o Zonal Percent Slope (mean, min, and max)
o Zonal Degree Slope (mean, min, and max)
o Zonal Aspect (mean – uses the Mean Angle Trigonometric approach)

System requirements:

Must have ArcGIS 8.3 with the ArcObjects .NET developer kit and the Microsoft .NET 1.1 runtime
