20 State Map, Northeastern AreaForest health aerial surveys, along with other sources of remote sensing and ground-based data, are used by the U.S. Forest Service and its cooperating agencies as part of an overall forest health monitoring (FHM) system.

The Forest Health Aerial Survey Viewer for the Northeastern Area displays maps of forest damage as reported annually through a cooperative effort between state and federal forestry agencies. Information contains polygonal delineations with attributes of cause, extent, severity and type of forest damages as observed from aircraft. Other associated attributes included host tree species and number of trees affected.

All aerial survey data are collected using national FHM aerial survey standards and subjected to quality assurance/quality control protocols involving ground-truth procedures.
