structure for data about natural and cultural resources and the
supporting infrastructure. This dataset is under development. Beta
implementation has begun to support Region 2's Integrated Resource
Inventory (IRI). IRI is a redelineation of Region 2's natural resource
into a Common Vegetation Unit, a Common Land Unit, and a Common ... Water
Unit, suitable for linking to a GIS. Beta testing has begun on the

(California), 8 (Southeastern U.S.), and 10
(Alaska). Recreation-oriented customer information dissemination
project is in analysis phase.
