A Decision Support System for Timber Harvest Scheduling
Abstract:A World Wide Web interface has been developed for an integrated geographic information system (GIS) and timber harvest scheduling model. The interface builds on the Austin Cary Memorial Forest GIS, which was developed to enhance teaching, research, and extension in GIS and related technologies for students, professors, and professional foresters. This Web-based decision support system includes applications for browsing data, displaying maps and images, and modeling timber harvests. The timber harvest scheduling model allows users to experiment with different scenarios by observing how economic and physical parameter changes affect forest timber outputs and structure.
