A prototype graphic landscape analysis system: Part 2. A bioeconomic analysis model for grazingland development
Abstract. A linkage was developed between a spatial graphic landscape system and a bioeconomic analysis model for grazingland. User interactive models were described. The first model evaluated potential water sites based on potential grazing land harvest.The second modelevaluated potential water sites by comparing the annualized net present values of two different water facility developments. The third identified optimal areas of a landscape for woody brush treatment using a linear optimizing procedure. Example analyses are described and recommendations for improvements to future models made.
