Use of ArcInfo, GRASS, ERDAS, and SAS to Create ASCII Files and ArcInfo Point Coverages For The Integrated Midwest Biomass Resource Analysis Project (1995 Paper, Pat Scarbrough-Luther, Bryan Coffey, Oak Ridge National Laboratory P.O. Box 2008 Oak Ridge, TN 37831-6407 Telephone: (615) 241-3960 Fax: (615) 574-4665 E-mail: objectives of the Integrated Midwest Biomass Resource Analysis project are to characterize and quantify the potential supply of biomass from energy crops in an 11 state area. Energy crops are crops such as switch grass or poplar trees grown to produce fuels. The purpose of this paper is to describe how large amounts of spatial data from various sources and in various formats were prepared, input, transferred between and manipulated in several software packages including ArcInfo, GRASS, ERDAS and SAS to create files describing the concurrence and spatial location of land use and soils.
