Powerful land-use simulation
The spatially explicit simulation engine maps historical and potential future changes to ecosystems, communities, and economies caused by land use, climate change, and natural disturbance. Flexibility is maximized through a web-based interface that is used to define and explore simple to complex land-use strategies.
By providing a user-friendly approach for planners and managers to complete land use simulations and analyze spatial data, ALCES Online overcomes barriers to effective cumulative effects assessment. A background in geomatics and computer modelling is not required. Everyone from junior analysts to managers and senior planners can conduct meaningful analyses quickly and easily.
