Summary
Abstract: Aerial detection surveys are intended to detect new activity, to
monitor the trend of ongoing activity, to provide general location information,
and to subjectively rate levels of defoliation. Manually mapping such activity
has quantitative and locator accuracy limitations and does not maintain the
accuracy standards as most data found in GIS databases.

Aerial detection pest surveys are generally carried out from fixed
wing aircraft where observers manually sketch each infestation site onto
1:100000 to 1:250000 scale basemaps. The observers sketch infestation sites by
drawing polygons around the outer perimeter of the infested area on the map.
Ground checks and other sampling methods are carried out to evaluate the
subjective ratings.

Data acquisition is conducted by Provincial governments and data is
passed to the Pacific Forestry Centre for archiveing. New coverages are added
as available.

To detect and monitor annual, visible vegetation damage primarily
caused by insects.
