Title: BLM AIM Assessment, Inventory, and Monitoring Strategy for Integrated Renewable Resources Management
Abstract: To effectively manage renewable resources, the BLM needs information at multiple scales about resource extent, condition and trend, stressors, and the location and nature of authorized uses, disturbances, and projects. Acquiring and assessing this information will be accomplished through the integration of several fundamental processes (i.e., the integrated approach), including the: (1) development and application of a consistent set of ecosystem indicators and methods for measuring them (i.e., core quantitative indicators and consistent methods for monitoring); (2) development and implementation of a statistically valid sampling framework; (3) application and integration of remote sensing technologies; and (4) implementation of related data acquisition and management plans (e.g., Geospatial Services Strategic Plan, Enterprise Geographical Information System architecture, and rapid ecoregional assessments).
