LandWeb Simulation Modelling

A research project and tool that uses spatial simulation modelling to generate the historical range of landscape conditions across western boreal Canada.

This is by far the most ambitous Healthy Landscapes project. The objective of LandWeb is to define historical NRV conditions at landscape scales across 140 million ha of the western boreal from spatially explicit simulation modelling.

The output will provide NRV for landscape scale metrics such as seral-stage levels and old forest patch sizes.
