Rich, Do you have handy the publication or equation for Walter, Hann 1986. If you do can you provide that to me thanks. Eric

Hi Eric.

The best place to go is the ORGANON web site itself:


You can also get just about any forest modeling paper that's been published at the USFS site here: http://www.treesearch.fs.fed.us/

I'm thinking you are interested in the taper equations for SMC or NWO regions. The ORGANON taper models were developed for the SWO region first and then calibrated for other regions later. Only the SWO results were published: http://www.cof.orst.edu/cof/fr/research/organon/pubs/FRL_RB56.pdf (Walters & Hann 1986). The coefficients for other regions have to be obtained from the ORGANON source code directly. Going to the code is the best way to ensure you have the latest models and coefficients because publications don't always occur. In this case, there actually was another taper re-calibration, with SWO published in 2011. I would assume the taper models and coefficients for NWO and SMC regions were updated as well, but would have to look at code to see.

  • Wanted to give a quick update on Assisi Cruiser, our upcoming data collector. Our prototype in PowerApps is working OK, but PowerApps has too many restrictions like meant to be online and can only share apps with members of the same computer domain. So now I am also prototyping in Xamarin: the cross platform (iOS, Android & Windows) tool of choice for most serious developers. It's going well and I should have something for others to test soon. Send me a note if you are interested in beta testing! Rich
  • Is is possible to change the BAF in the middle of a cruise?
  • This afternoon we are starting our seasonal inventory cruising program. Radial growth measurement. I would like a 5 year growth measurement. You have a field in Assisi for this, but I don’t see one on the spreadsheet. Just add it before the first segment call?
