The Heureka Forestry Decision Support System (DSS) (http://www.slu.se/SHa) is a suite of freely available softwares developed and hosted by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). The system covers the whole decision support process from data inventory to tools for selecting among plan alternatives with multi-criteria decision making techniques.
The software applications are intended for both large-scale and small-scale forestry and are designed for different users' specific problem areas:
- StandWise for stand-level analysis
- PlanWise for forest-level planning and analysis
- PlanEval for multi-critera decision analysis, to help comparing plans generated in PlanWise
- RegWise for regional and national scenario analysis
The system is maintained, developed and supported by the Forest Sustainability Analysis program at SLU.
The softwares are the results of a research programme carried out in collaboration with Forestry Research Institute of Sweden (Skogforsk).
