DTW Mapper analyzes mapped soils in a given project Area of Interest (AOI) — such as an entire woodlot or forest stand(s) — to identify potential forest types expected to occur within each soil type. Forest types are then related to preferred breeding habitat for New England wildlife, and lists of those wildlife species are provided.
