|Title: ||Web-interface for geo-referencing forest economic valuation surveys|
|Authors: ||Palma, J.H.N.|
|Issue Date: ||2010|
|Abstract: ||In New Zealand, 90% of forests consist of one type of exotic tree: Radiata pine (Pinus radiata).
A study on the management of such exotic planted forests in New Zealand for the conservation of threatened native animals and plants (e.g., kiwi, kakabeak) is undergoing and socio-economic questionnaires are an important tool to understand public views on the role of exotic forests for the native species.
In such questionnaires, is important to understand the relationship of the answers to landscape elements, either natural (e.g. mountain) or more artificial (e.g. buildings).
The tool supplies the coordinates to the analysts which, through landscape metrics, will relate the qualitative importance given by certain answers to the proximity to certain elements in the landscape.
The tool (see link below) can be adapted to any survey that could consider the coordinates of the answers as an added value to the questionnaires analysis.
