NatureServe VistaEntry ID: NATURESERVE_VISTA
Abstract: NatureServe Vista is an extension to ArcGIS that supports complex assessment and planning in any environment, anywhere that has data sufficient for your planning needs. The tool helps managers and planners assess impacts on a variety of natural, cultural, and development objectives, and create options for sites, and entire landscapes and seascapes.
Vista supports decision-making by providing ... quantitative reports and maps, and allows testing of “what-if” situations on the fly. The tool combines data, expert knowledge, and stakeholder values to support development of well-documented and defensible solutions. Vista supports ongoing, routine, plan implementation, and adaptive management. Vista is an ideal tool for implementing the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation. Vista also works well with a variety of other tools to integrate other functions, such as solution optimization, ecosystem services valuation, and sector-specific suitability analysis and planning.
