Restoration Opportunities Optimization Tool (ROOT) release
Hello NatCap community,
We are very excited to release the Restoration Opportunities Optimization Tool (ROOT), a new ecosystem service software tool to assist with forest landscape restoration planning. The tool helps inform smarter and more targeted investments in forest landscape restoration decisions by illustrating which restoration opportunities may provide the greatest benefits at the lowest cost. ROOT can be useful for visualizing the full range of possible restoration options and identifying tradeoffs and synergies between multiple objectives for restoration.
Feel free to use ROOT with the sample data or your own data. We look forward to hearing your feedback and incorporating it into future releases!
