Developing a strategic approach to protecting biodiversity - Landscape Opportunities Visualisation Toolkit (LOViT)


The concept of a strategic approach to biodiversity management has been increasingly accepted with its central premise being the maintenance and enhancement of biodiversity levels. This project proposes to build a Landscape Opportunities Visualisation Toolkit (LOViT) which identifies the best locations in a landscape for habitat creation and for analysing, exploring and visualising the alternative conservation scenarios that arise in doing so. LOViT utilises existing species and habitat data sources, manipulates these data under a series of separate applications which identify areas of core habitat and key areas for habitat expansion. Ultimately the user will access the information via a map-base interface which allows an examination of habitat and species conservation scenarios.
