On-Line Analysis of Southern FIA DataThis article is part of a larger document. View the larger document here.
The Southern On-Line Estimator (SOLE) is a web-based FIA database analysis tool designed with an emphasis on modularity. The Java-based user interface is simple and intuitive to use and the R-based analysis engine is fast and stable. Each component of the program (data retrieval, statistical analysis and output) can be individually modified to accommodate major additions or changes. This modular structure fosters a flexible architecture to encourage outside development of analysis algorithms. SOLE produces statistical tables, figures, maps, and PDF reports based on user selected area and variables.
