Customizing ESRIís Landscape Modeler for the Chesapeake Bay Watershed
Track: Environmental Management
Authors: John Wolf, Carmen Constantine, Scott Kocher
The Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) is leveraging Esriís Landscape Modeler application to develop a tool for multi-criteria decision-making. The Chesapeake Landscape Modeler (CLM) prototype combines Esri-hosted landscape services with CBP-specific data resources for identifying regional priorities for conservation and restoration. The interactive CLM provides a consistent analysis framework for selecting and weighting ecological and socioeconomic factors across multiple disciplines.
