Spatial Modeling

The Patchworks software provides effective, innovative mechanisms to control the spatial allocations of management treatments and the retention of forest structures. Options include:
  • Patch size distributions by area or frequency. Multiple patch categories can be modeled simultaneously.
  • Variable adjacency delay timings based on user-specified criteria.
  • Multiple sub-regional targets, which can be used to implement zonal constraints.
  • Road access models that enable you to implement rational economic criteria.
  • Manual imposition of go/no-go zones that change over time.
