RESULTS: A New Integrated Tool for Forest Stewardship

John Gallimore, RPF

Information Management Group

Ministry of Forests

ESF User Meeting December 9th, 2003


Business needs requiring data

  • Clarity :what standards apply to a cutblock, who owns the obligations and their status

  • Silviculture compliance monitoring and reporting

  • Effectiveness monitoring and evaluation of code (WT review)

  • Annual denudation info for area based cut control

  • Continual Provincial forest cover land status updates

New Code of 87


Current RESULTS Stats

Total number of Openings:180,000

Representing Coverage:7.7 million ha

Total Timber Harvesting Landbase (THLB): 23 million ha

Proportion of Total THLB:33.5%

Annual number of new openings: 7,400 approx.

Annual area of new openings:212,000 ha

Forest Cover updates:3/4 to 1 million ha /yr

Free growing obligation duration:15 to 20 years


Retooling of ISIS into RESULTS

  • To save ongoing systems costs of $3 million/year, the current VM platform is being shut down this year

  • All VM applications are rewritten and being placed on an Oracle base

  • The VM conversion and ISIS replacement has been in planning and underway for 2 years

  • From July-Nov 2002, FPB gave best-approximation of FRPA business needs to meet the July 2003 target for ISIS conversion

  • Sufficient lead-time was required to articulate business changes to IMG and licensees so that changes could be made to the data management systems


The future with RESULTS

  • Web-based or ESF transfer of all map and attribute info from industry and BCTS

  • submitted digital information provided meets clear standards for quality and timeliness

  • No MoF staff intervention

  • licensee will have access to all the information they have previously submitted and any new info

  • Information resides in RESULTS or is transferred to MSRM at set periods

  • LRDW

SUMMARY

FS810 FOREST COVER

DATA ENTRY

Pre-approved FSP Standards

applied to the standards

units within a cutblock

No Forms to District office

No Data Entry


A defined forest unit will have its own stocking standards


RESULTS will allow licensees topropose standards on the web


DM does approvals of standards or amendments online


On a cutblock specific basis - a forester assigns approved FDP or FSP stocking standards to each area or standards unit in the block


No later than completion of harvest a licensee must electronically submit a report and map which identifies which stocking standards have been assigned to a cutblock


RESULTS will record the standards that have been assigned to a cutblock and copy in the pre-approved FSP values


By May 31 of each year submit electronically a record of the harvested and silviculturally treated area completed in the previous fiscal year on the cutblock.


RESULTS will record basic accomplishments and needs - for non replaceable forest licences, FIA, and Section 162.2 areas


Upon completion of harvest, and on or before regeneration delay and free growing date, submit electronically a map and forest cover of the cutblock. Also declare that key milestones have been met


RESULTS will keep a permanent record of forest cover and land status changes over time


RESULTS will keep a record of the licensee’s key milestone declarations (DN, RG, FG)


Forest Cover Attributes and Spatialfiles electronically transferred to MSRM

DATA ENTRY

Transfer of information to users

  • MAPVIEW will provide live basic queries and color theming for information contained in RESULTS

  • When requested, MSRM will transfer complete graphics and forest inventory information to TSB or the DFAM consortia


Conclusion

RESULTS will

  • provide new capabilities for approving standards, amendments and key milestone declarations

  • identify what & where the reforestation obligations are

  • identify who owns the obligations and their status

  • record key harvesting and silviculture accomplishments

  • will provide inventory update capabilities to MSRM and TSR

  • provide ongoing performance records, compliance monitoring, and code effectiveness evaluation
