Forest maturity map
This interactive mapping app presents the main project output showing the distribution of forest maturity and stand development in 10 ordinal (ranked) classes. A simplified version of this map can also be displayed where the ten classes have been collapsed into three categories: Young (classes 1-3); Intermediate (classes 4-6) and Mature (classes 7-9) (see the Documentation page for further details). Also displayed is Mature forest within the four GAP categories.
The default display shows the forest maturity map in 10 ordinal classes (with class 0 being "indeterminate")
