Volume Reports - BETA

Ever since we released Plot Hound, the top feature request has been volume calculations.  We've been hard at work and are proud to announce a limited beta rollout of volume reports!  We calculate volumes with stem profile equations from the Clark '91 paper.  We'll include details in a future blog post, but if you have questions in the meantime, please contact us.

Redesigned "Stand Details" page

The first thing you'll notice when you log in is that we've totally upgraded the old stand details page.  We've increased the screen real-estate of the map and moved the more detailed reports to their own tabs on the left.

Order Volume Report

Besides the standard "Basic" and "Cruise" report tabs, you'll notice a new "Volume" report tab.  After you upload your cruise, click the "Add to Cart" button to order a volume report.

Specify Product Rules

You'll be taken to a page where you can specify the product rules (what species/diameters are classified as Pulp, CNS, Saw, etc.).  We've provided 2 default product rulesets from the FIA product definitions (one for the East and one for the West).  If you need something more advanced, you can upload a spreadsheet with your own rules.  As shown above, we've put together an interactive demo that shows how to create your own rules, but if that seems too complicated, please contact us and we'll help you create your rules.  

$1 Early Bird Special

We're eager to hear your feedback about the volume reports.  Although we eventually plan on charging $30 per report, in this early phase you can get volume reports for $1 each.
