Please download and read the Release notes.
Important! The CMI 2010a version is not compatible with data created from previous TIMVEG CMI versions. In other words it cannot “read” or load data from the 2009 TIMVEG CMI version and earlier. If you want to save data from these older versions it is suggested that you save the entire CMI folder and its associated files to another location before installing the 2010a version.
VRI 2010a version is compatible with data created from the 2009
Revised User Guides! These two user guides have been updated. It is important to review the data entry procedures denoted in these guides. These changes are easy to find - the modified sections of the user guide are noted in the first section “Modifications and Additions” and page numbers are referenced. New or revised sections are highlighted in yellow highlight.

Version 2009a Features (June 19, 2009)
Version 2007c Features
Version 2007c Features
1) minor fixes to ED card validation
Version 2007b Features
1) The VRI version (2007b) includes a correction to enhanced trees for NVAF and VRI plots -
When you "enhance" a tree in a VRI aux plot because it is a new species, you have to enter in a log grade, damage agent, loss indicators if present among other things. When you go into an NVAF plot afterwards, and copy the VRI data over, the enhanced data all comes over, including the loss indicators. Previous to this version the loss indicators were not being copied over.
2) Site Trees outside of prism sweep (99 series), were requiring enhanced validation. Changed so that Site trees outside of prism sweep (99 series trees) do not require validation. Out of plot trees are normally site trees. Length and crown class is required for the site tree portion only (Card type 10). Site tree validation still required.
3) VRI and CMI Handheld - Modified Cluster Card Header Validation - Fields - "GPS IPC file ID" Remove NODATA and NORECEPT validations Add INTENDED validation. Also, validation no longer allows NODATA and NORECEPT as legal values.
4) CMI Handheld Small Trees section in Printout - Column headers changed to accommodate diameter sizes for CMI > 1.3 <5cm@DBH 31cm - 1.3M
5) VRI Validation handheld - The total length of the CWD transect can be less than 24m. There is a procedure in the manual to reduce the total length of the transect where there is heavy or very heavy accumulations of CWD. The regular length is 24m, but in heavy accumulations the total length can be reduced to 12m, and very heavy would be 6m. So... The allowed total length of each cwd should be one of 6, 12, or 24. The length observed of the transect must be less than whatever value chosen. For example values of 11m observed out of a line length of 12 is correct, but observed 13 out of a line length of 12 in not valid. This is for VRI only, the CMI has to have a total length of 30m, but the observed length can be less than that.
6) CMI and VRI EP and ED card validation. On the ecological description card (EP), there are 3 sets of fields for "ecosystem description", one for Plot Centre, one for site two and one for site three. When a crew has only one site on the plot (data under plot centre), and nothing on the others, the ED card is not needed. TIMVEG used to give an error stating that data is missing on the ED card even if you only have one site description. The only time an ED card is needed is if at least ONE of site 2 or site 3 has a larger % coverage than the plot centre % coverage. For example, if the plot centre has 40%, and site 2 and 3 have 30% and 30 % respectively, the ED card is NOT needed, even though it has less than half of the total coverage. This situation used to produce an error as well. As another example, if the plot centre is 40% and site 2 (or site 3) has 60%, then an ED card is needed. The cover of all 3 needs to add up to 100%. The above has validation error logic has been fixed. The fix applies to the PC batch validation only. If you go into the ED card on the hand held and validate it will still ask for missing data. The PC batch validation will no longer list ED errors unless site 2 or 3 has larger %coverage than plot center %coverage
