|Title||Linking GIS and reserve selection algorithms: Towards a geospatial data model|
|Year of Publication||2003|
|Keywords||data model reserve selection object-oriented conservation planning|
Most reserve selection algorithms used in research or conservation practice are only loosely coupled with geographic information system technology. This paper argues that formalizing a core geospatial data model would benefit algorithm developers, researchers, and practitioners through standardized data management and ease of database development with any reserve selection algorithm.
