1. (16 points) Your client is interested in the Battle Creek package listed here and needs more information about the property before purchase. Specifically,

  • how many acres have been previously clearcut and
  • how many acres are in hardwood (anything other than clearcut)?

The property boundary GPS coordinates (UTM/Zone17N/NAD1983 GPS) are listed in Appendix 1. The surveyor informed you that the property is exactly 227.8 acres. Appendix 2 shows a cover type map sent to you by the client. It is stretched out of place and is at a very low resolution, but the cover type delineations are correct.
