Who We Are

EMDS Consortium

The EMDS Consortium is a group of businesses led by the Mountain View Business Group who have partnered with the USDA Forest Service to build and grow the EMDS Framework. The initial consortium members were Mountain View Business Group, Rules of Thumb, InforHarvest and the USDA Forest Service. After careful review of our needs for EMDS's growth, in 2016 we added LPA and BayesFusion to the consortium.
