HAP stream reaches are intended to help ODF Stewardship Foresters, forest landowners and other users to identify stream reaches in which recruitment of large woody debris is most likely to be effective at enhancing habitat for salmonids.

Locate places in Oregon through an interactive map
 
The New Oregon Latitude and Longitude Locator LocatOR  
 
LocateOR is an application that will allow users to locate places in Oregon using a place name, a latitude and longitude, a legal description (township and range), a highway milepost or UTM coordinates. 
 
Locate OR is built using ESRI’s ArcGIS Web Server technology, and SilverLight.  Similar to OLALO, LocatOR allows users to quickly find geographic locations in Oregon and then display a variety of GIS data about that location, including: aerial photography; USGS quad maps; roads, streams; etc., as well as data unique to ODF, such as fire protection district boundaries.
 
Custom features of the application include:
  • Location information derived from a point that you click on the map is automatically entered into the clipboard, so it can be pasted into an email, or other document. 
  • Specific information about VOR’s can be copied to the clipboard in the same manner.  
  • Bookmark and measuring tools. 
  • Oregon’s Forest BioDiversity Explorer. For a demo of this feature, watch this web video demonstration.
 
LocatOR was built to replace OLALO.
 
If you have questions or problems with LocatOR, please contact Chris Bradberry at 503-945-7313

What is GIS?
 
A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an organized collection of personnel, geographic data, computer hardware, and software designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, distribute, and display all forms of geographically referenced information. 
 
A GIS can also be described by the complexity and types of questions that the system can answer.  They are: location, conditions, trends, patterns, and modeling.  Location has to do what the question of what is at a specific location. Conditions are the result of a query to find locations that meet specific criteria.  Trends are the differences in a location over time.  Patterns show the relationship of conditions to each other.  Modeling is a way of answering "what if" questions using complex and varied data.

Required furlough days and ODF
Coping with reduced state revenues continues to require closing most state offices and facilities on certain days throughout 2011, 2012, and the beginning of 2013. As an emergency response agency, the Oregon Department of Forestry will not observe most of those required state agency furlough days that result in agency closures. ODF offices will remain open on those days, with the exception of the day following Thanksgiving in both 2011 and 2012. Department employees are still required to take the same number of unpaid furlough days as all other state employees; however, those days will be spread throughout the biennium, as opposed to required on mandatory state agency furlough closure days.
