Following in the footsteps of the inaugural 2011 STSM conference, this conference will bring together users of landscape STSM tools - including ST-Sim, VDDT, TELSA and the Path Landscape Model - to provide opportunities for sharing experiences with different applications of the STSM approach.
The event will include an optional one-day training session on the use of ST-Sim, followed by two days of talks by scientists and managers from across North America. Topics will include modeling of land use/land cover change, forest and rangeland management, wetlands management, fuels planning, ecological restoration and reclamation, invasive plant management, wildlife habitat management, climate change and carbon modeling. We will also spend some time presenting and discussing future directions for the development of STSM tools.
This is an opportunity to find out who is doing what and how they are doing it, and to provide input into future developments in landscape modeling technology.
