Oregon Forest Inventory and Analysis Subcontractor needed
« on: June 03, 2016, 11:26:36 pm »
We need to sub out 30 Phase 2 FIA plots in Area 5 (Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests) up here in Oregon. It would take about 1.5 to 2 months for one person to get up to speed and complete the plots; which would comprise 3 plot sets of 10, depending familiarity with the protocol and area.

If you've done FIA Phase 2 plots before, Region 6 has done away with a couple things (ground cover and small end/large end diameters of coarse woody debris) that make it a more streamlined measurement protocol.

Basic equipment required:  4x4 vehicle, DBH tapes, laser hypsometers, increment borers.  We use the Juniper Systems Allegro to run the Forest Service MIDAS program, but you can use any Data Recorder with Windows Mobile. 

The two things that are required that are not standard are Microsoft Access (in order to run the MIDAS edit program) and a Survey Grade GPS capable of producing a file in Trimble TerraSync (so the Geo 5t, GeoXH, Geo 7 is what the government recommends).

Willing to pay full bid price per plot.
Work would need to be completed by October 1, but the earlier the better.

Please contact me at with questions or interest.

I have attached the protocol book for those who are not familiar.
