Running the EVALIDator using the fullreport API GET request

The fullreport request can return output in either HTML, JSON, or XML format. The following example returns forest land area estimates for a circular area centered at 45.0 degrees latitude and -93.0 degrees longitude with a radius of 50 miles. Information from the 2015 inventory of Minnesota (evaludation group 272015) and Wisconsin (evaluation group 552015) is used. Click on the hyperlink or copy the hyperlink and paste it in your browser's address line to submit the fullreport request. After several seconds a report of population estimates with associated sampling errors and the number or non-zero plots used to obtain the estimates will be returned.

This next example returns estimates of the area of forest land for Minnesota and Wisconsin by State and stand-size for the 2015 inventories.

Batch EVALIDator reports using MS-Excel and fullreport GET API

The EVALIDator fullreport API makes it possible to run multiple reports in batch mode. Multiple reports could be run for a single location, or a single report could be run for multiple locations. For example, in the first case it would be possible to generate a set of reports for a single national forest while in the second case volume estimates could be generated for many locations to help in the siting of a new sawmill. A standard set of reports have been created for each State and are available for downloading from Microsoft Excel 2013 workbooks containing many reports for the most recent State inventories. The reports have already been generated in these workbooks. If you would like to rerun the reports yourself you will have to set the "Trusted location" and "Enable macros" within the workbook in order for the "Query" button on the "Inputs" worksheet to work.
