Decision Support System
  • Knowledge base
    • Logic model
    • Logical network of information
  • Logic model engine
    • Inference engine
    • Evaluates the logical network
  • Evaluation results
    • Tabular/graphical
    • Spatially explicit
knowledge base
Knowledge Base
  • Meta-database
    • formal logical representation of how to evaluate information
    • Relationship of interrelated topics
    • Mental map
    • Graphic design (modularity)
    • Diverse topics can be analyzed together

goal evaluation
Goal Evaluation
  • Current vital signs monitoring data
      • 2006 vegetation monitoring data
  • Evaluation parameters are derived from:
    • Baseline conditions
      • monitoring data 1998 - 2005
    • Management plans
      • Vegetation Management Plan goals

≤ 5% foliar cover of woody species

    • Desired future conditions

where to go now
Where to go now…
  • Expand to other vital signs monitoring: aquatic, bird communities, climate
  • Continued development of park management goals
  • Refinement of evaluation parameters
  • Adaptive management and planning
