Logging impact reports in California are paper-based and near-useless for assessing true impacts of clear cutting. Forests Forever is working to require that these forestry reports be published online in a structured format. This challenge will demonstrate how structured data from the state would interact with other data sources to show the true impacts of logging in the Sierras.
Forests Forever is offering a $1,000 prize for the best application in this category.
