Title: Development of a Decision Support System for Monitoring, Reporting, Forecasting Ecological Conditions of the Appalachian Trail

Author: Wang, Y.; Nemani, R.; Dieffenbach, F.; Stolte, K.; Holcomb, G.;

Date: 2010

Source: In: Proceedings of IEEE International Geoscience & Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS), 2010, pp. 1-4.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: This paper introduces a collaborative multi-agency effort to develop an Appalachian Trail (A.T.) MEGA-Transect Decision Support System (DSS) for monitoring, reporting and forecasting ecological conditions of the A.T. and the surrounding lands. The project is to improve decision-making on management of the A.T. by providing a coherent framework for data integration, status report and trend analysis. The A.T. MEGA-Transect DSS is to integrate NASA multi-platform sensor data and modeling through the Terrestrial Observation and Prediction System (TOPS) and in situ measurements from A.T. MEGA-Transect partners to address identified natural resource priorities and improve resource management decisions.

Keywords: Appalachian Trail, TOPS, Integration, Visualization, Modeling
