Updated Protected Area Toolbox (PAT) for ArcGIS
Authors: George Raber, John Knowles, Steve Schill
Identifying gaps in protected areas is one step in the process of creating protected area networks. Several years ago Protected Area Tools for ArcGIS was developed to assist this process. Recent advancements in the programing code make it easier to use, as well as faster in processing time. This includes building many of the tools using the arcpy data access (da) module. The increase in speed has allowed for more study of the tools including running sensitivity simulations that are presented.
