Import forest map (GIS)

A forest map is a map over the stands within a forest area. A forest map can be imported after forest data has been imported, and it can then be linked to the area selected.






The file format support is shape-file format. A "shape-file" actually consists of several files, the ones required for being able to to do the import have the file extensions.shp, .shx, and .dbf.
