Abstract:
Successful and meaningful natural resource planning and decision-making should be based upon a sound understanding of the relevant resource parameters and their functional interrelationships. Such a baseline understanding is the foundation on which any predictive-type planning efforts will be built. Formation of a computerized natural resource information system for a major watershed of the Chiricahua National Monument has involved the use of data-intensive spatial sampling techniques; multiple, simultaneous hierarchical cluster analyses; and computer graphics in an attempt to provide Park Service management personnel with a functional, accessible, and dynamic information base. The total methodological package, which has been geared toward operationality and economy, is herein described. Study output includes two- and three-dimensional computer displays of resource properties and processes. Possible future applications of the methodology, to the entire Monument or to other natural resource areas, are discussed.
