Project Description

Research effort to improve decision support for habitat conservation planning. This approach is intended to develop a computer tool accessible and useable by local HCP planning teams using off-the-shelf software combined with some customized modules tailored for the HCP process. Primary objectives include: � Multi-objective; species, habitat, variety of land-use planning considerations; � Combine the best available biotic data and socio-economic data; � GIS and database software, and optimization models; � Produce alternative potential solutions that appropriately evaluate conservation goals as well as socio-economic goals; � Identify land allocation alternatives that attain the best balance of both.
