The Mississippi Forestry Commission's Resource Analysis Program oversees the development, implementation, and management of the agency's geographic information system. The statewide Resource Analysis system is utilized by fire, public lands, private lands, and urban and community forestry programs. The MFC’s analysis of forest resources is also used in support of economic development, providing data to companies interested in Mississippi. The Mississippi Forestry Commission provides forest resource information and maps for economic development. A statewide assessment of forest resources is maintained utilizing satellite imagery to estimate forest removals, regeneration, and developmental stages.
