(UPDATE: Ecotrust has asked me to remove material related to the Calzone and Gulf Tool. Please feel free to contact Ecotrust directly to find out more about those tools)
I have been working on a new decision support tool for Ecotrust over the last few months, so today I decided to make some screen casts (with audio!) of some of our work.
Cal-Zone - Web based DST based on Marxan / Marzone for helping evaluate site selection of marine protected areas. Marxan / Marzone results are generated and stored in PostGIS for display via OpenLayers. New windowing functionality introduced to allow for future enhancements such as multi-run comparisons and use of region of interest tools for site selection.
Gulf Tool - Web based DST based around scenario development for Gulf of Mexico fisheries. Uses a Chameleon based frontend, Mapserver on the backend and all data storage and queries through PostGIS. GMT is used for graphing.
Just a snapshot into some of the DST development we are undertaking and very excited about. Hope you enjoy…
