About Spatial Planning Systems

Spatial Planning Systems is a consulting firm specializing in quantitative solutions to difficult natural resource management planning problems.

Our primary focus is the development of spatial and temporal treatment schedules that meet or exceed ecological requirements, address social expectations and maximize financial return. Many management agencies are now exploring landscape management issues, and need to understand how management activities influence the changing spatial pattern of forest composition over time. We help our clients formulate quantitative resource management questions, and utilize GIS and custom developed spatial algorithms to derive answers to these questions.

Our focus is to ensure that clients obtain meaningful results from our analytical work. We provide assistance in the design of forest management information systems, and undertake custom software development.
