Forest Inventory Data Online (FIDO)
FIDO is FIA's latest online tool for creating tables and maps through a web browser. You can run reports for an area of interest and survey year, or, if you are an advanced user, create completely customized reports based on whatever criteria you choose. You can also save your work to your hard drive to load and rerun your custom FIDO retrievals at a later time.
FIDO may provide all the data you need or it can be helpful for people to refine their ideas before making a data request.
