Description from Website

The KRESS Modeler is computerized multifactor decision making tool. It is the outgrowth of work that was done on a series of projects by the Department of Rangeland Ecology and Management and the Department of Agronomy and Range Science that evaluated the suitability of various locations across a landscape for use by domestic livestock and wildlife. We needed a software package that could take landscape parameters, determine the suitability of each site on the landscape for use by animals based upon knowledge of experts in the discipline and GIS data layers. We had information about how animals use a landscape and wanted to construct models the predicted landscape use. We also wanted to determine the accuracy of the model or map produced based on actual observations of animals.
