RMLands: Rocky Mountain Landscape Simulator



This page contains links to RMLands documentation, including a description of the simulation model and user guidelines for the software.

RMLands Overview --This document provides a general description, essentially an executive summary, of RMLands and its relationship to other modeling components, including HABIT@ and FRAGSTATS.
User Guidelines --NOTE, this document is not yet available. Eventually, this document will provide an overview of the RMLands software, including a detailed technical description of the information required to setup, parameterize and run RMLands via the graphical user interface.
RMLands Spatial Data -- This document provides a general description of the spatial data layers of RMLands, including both model input and output layers. Each spatial data layer is described only briefly. The details of the specific data sources and processes used to derive each layer are not included here as they vary from one application to another.
UPL Vegetation Dynamics Summary -- This document provides a general description of the cover types, condition classes (i.e., seral stages), succession transition pathways, effects of natural disturbance processes, and reference conditions for vegetation of the Uncompahgre Plateau Landscape in southwestern Colorado.
