U.S. Forest Service Interior West FIA 2010 User Group Online Meeting

On April 13, the Interior West Forest Inventory and Analysis (IW-FIA) program of the U.S. Forest Service held their 2010 User Group meeting online, in cooperation with USU Forestry Extension. The IW-FIA program holds annual User Group meetings to update stakeholders and data users on IW-FIA operations and other FIA news.  These meetings are usually held at various locations across the Interior West. This year IW-FIA attempted to reach a wider audience and save our users' travel costs by holding the meeting as a webcast.  We hope this format worked well for our audience, and we encourage feedback about the event.
