## Four Specie Habitat Suitability

Last semester, I tasked students with describing suitable habitat for four animals: wild turkey, timber rattlesnake, striped skunk, and the black bear.  Your task this week in lab is to develop a model to highlight these ‘suitable’ areas for each of the critters.  You will use the topological operators I […]

## RCW Site Assessment Questions – Redo

Use the RCWData linked from the Lab section of our ELC page.  I fixed the original shapefiles by exporting them to a file geodatabase. Attribute table information: baac: basal area per acre (ft2) cuft: cubic foot volume per acre (ft3) age2018: December 31, 2018 age (For this exercise, assume you […]

## Four Specie Habitat Suitability

Now that we’ve finished defining our habitat suitability criteria, I want you to implement it in the GIS.  We are looking for the areas that are suitable for all four species.  I want you to generate a map showing your findings.  Submit it to the lab 7 assignment folder by […]

## Spatial Data Modeling II

From Monday’s class we’ve determined 1) WHY we would want to manage for our specie of interest, 2) WHAT features on the landscape are important, and 3) HOW these features are defined. Wild Turkey:  WHY: hunting revenue WHAT: riparian zones & oak trees (mast producers) HOW: within 50m […]
