Abstract

The overall goal of our Evaluation Monitoring project (EM-18-WC) funded by the Forest Service, Forest Health Monitoring program was to provide a rigorous assessment of ADS and eDaRT products and outline recommendations for complementary use by land managers. To meet this goal, our specific objectives were to (1) develop and execute a ground-based sampling strategy to compare ADS and eDaRT to reference validation data, and (2) make recommendations for appropriate use of data in varied applications.
