ESF User Meeting December 9th, 2003

business needs requiring data
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
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
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
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

DATA ENTRY

Pre-approved FSP Standards

applied to the standards

units within a cutblock

No Forms to District office

No Data Entry

slide10
On a cutblock specific basis - a forester assigns approved FDP or FSP stocking standards to each area or standards unit in the block
slide11

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

slide12
RESULTS will record the standards that have been assigned to a cutblock and copy in the pre-approved FSP values
slide13

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.

slide14
RESULTS will record basic accomplishments and needs - for non replaceable forest licences, FIA, and Section 162.2 areas
slide15

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

slide18

Forest Cover Attributes and Spatialfiles electronically transferred to MSRM

transfer of information to users
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
Conclusion

RESULTS will

  • 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
