Re: Import data from Excel to Eco v6.0 in a plot-based sample project?

Yes this is still the case. Given our limited staff and development time I don't believe this will be implemented in the near future without a dedicated funding source for this specific feature. Depending on what results you are interested in and your desired accuracy you could always import your da...

Re: Strata question

This depends on the goals of your project. If you keep them as separate strata in a single project you will have all of your data and results collected in one place. You will also notice that many of the reports have breakdowns by strata which would allow you to compare the different properties. How...

Re: Energy savings

The Energy savings in i-Tree Eco will work without the crown measurements. However, you do need to enable the "Energy (building interactions) option under "Data Collection Options" during project set up and you do need to collect measurements of the distance and direction to residential structures 2...

Re: Species not included in Species list

Thanks for the question. The i-Tree Eco list currently includes more than 8,000 species, https://www.itreetools.org/documents/488/EcoSpeciesList_20July2018_esxmUKb.xlsx . It has pretty good coverage for most species in the US but may be missing some international species and some tropical species. I...

Re: Importing/Reconciling csv with addresses geocoded in Eco 6

Unfortunately, we do not have a plot-based importer at this time. You could attempt to open the .ieco project file using MS Access, locating the appropriate table, and pasting in your full columns of location information at once. This is not a supported or tested method as it is very easy to corrupt...

Re: i-Tree eco Forecast validate

Thank you for your question. The Forecasting module within i-Tree Eco was first released in 2015 the with advent of the v6 Eco application. I don't know of anyone who has done any testing on the model accuracy. However, anyone could do their own tests using historical data or any data sets measured ...

Re: Reference for method to estimate tree count

Dead trees would be included and multi-stem trees are counted as a single tree. The reasoning with including standing dead trees is that they are still storing carbon and therefore still providing some benefit. As far as replicating the software exactly you will want to make sure you are using the e...

Re: Reference for method to estimate tree count

Thanks for the question. The basic method that i-Tree Eco uses is stratified random sampling. I am not sure what data you have so it is difficult to describe the calculations you would need to perform. Also, I am not sure of the exact details of the London sample design as it is a little atypical wi...

Re: Tracking phenology data for urban trees?

Hi thanks for your question. I am not sure which i-Tree tool you are considering using. The only one that will allow you to collect coordinate data would be the mobile data collection option of i-Tree Eco. However, i-Tree Eco is not intended to be an all purpose data collection tool. i-Tree Eco is m...

Re: Importing/Reconciling csv with addresses geocoded in Eco 6

i-Tree Eco holds data in an underlying relational database rather than .csv tables. The most straightforward method to get your coordinate data into i-Tree Eco may be to create an empty project and import your .csv, assuming that your .csv contains all of your Eco data. This approach will only work ...

Re: comparing 30yr to 50yr forecast outputs

I was able to replicate that discrepancy due to different project lengths and agree that appears to a bug rather than a rounding error. I have submitted it as an issue through our internal system and our development team will take a look at it. Adding avoided runoff to the Forecast projections is on...

Re: Differences between Ecov6 field manual and program

This is a very recent update to i-Tree Eco that has not been documented in the manual. i-Tree Eco previously only used dieback but some users are more comfortable collecting a crown condition percent. Users now have the option collecting either dieback or crown condition du...
