Hi guys. I'm an undergrad GIS student doing a small project on forest carbon storage in NZ using Arcmap. I've created some rasters that show storage patterns for particular years and compared them with some basic map algebra. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some input on what other spatial and statistical analysis tools would be useful to present my results. So yeah if anyone could point me in the right direction that would be a great help. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Also, can anyone recommend a good program that will allow me to create prism maps? The only one I've found so far is Mapinfo Professional, and that crashes every time I try to use the 'create prism' function.

I think you need to rephrase your question more specifically, since it is not clear what you are asking - are you needing inputs on how to calculate the data or just the presentation(s) of the maps?

I think you can make prism maps in ArcGlobe, ArcScene and Google Earth. I would try to avoid it though, it is more of a gimmick than something useful for communicating information...
