Outline

Outline

  • Introduction /Why?

  • Description of Entity Relationship (ER) models

  • Description of Wildlife Habitat Associations (WHR)

  • ER model of WHR(s)


Scalability

Scalability

  • More pixels

  • More animals

  • More attribute maps

  • More suitability measures

  • More people involved

  • More speed


Entity relationship modeling

Entity-Relationship Modeling

  • Entity

    • Class of facts that are described by a consistent set of attributes. The basic building block

  • Attributes

    • Specific quality of an entity (may in itself be an entity)

  • Relations

    • Description of the association between entities

    • Cardinality, modality


Characteristics of er modeling

Characteristics of ER modeling

  • Abstract method of modeling data

  • Graphical in nature

  • Independent of analysis

  • Beginning of a well designed database

    • Guarantee of “working”

    • Standards exist (SQL)

    • scalable solution


Wildlife habitat relations whr

Wildlife Habitat Relations (WHR)

Any rule based model that predicts habitat quality based on a set of landscape attributes.

Wildlife Habitat Relations are used to create maps of habitat suitability. Usually by “overlay” of landscape attributes.


Example

Example

Suitable habitat for my favorite species occurs in the Rio Grande Basin at elevations over 1800 meters and less than 2400 meters. Breeding habitat occurs up to 2000 meters on South facing slopes.


A whr is analogous to a paragraph

A WHR is analogous to a paragraph

Clause a: “Suitable habitat formy favorite species occurs in the Rio Grande basin”

Clause b: “{Suitable habitatmy favorite species occurs} between 1800 and 2400 meters”

Clause c: “Breeding habitat {for my favorite species} occurs up to 2000 meters”

Clause d: “{Breeding habitatfor my favorite species} occurs on south facing slopes


A whr has two major entities

A WHR Has Two Major Entities

  • Clause: The relationship between a single attribute and its suitability to a particular taxon.

  • Statement: An expression that contains the rules for combining multiple clauses into a single habitat prediction.


Clause taxonomy

Clause Taxonomy

Four types of clauses based on the nature of the inputs (attribute) and outputs (Suitability measure)


Statements combine clauses using a decision matrix

Statements Combine Clauses Using a Decision Matrix

“and” decision matrix / (“or” decision matrix)
