Resources Allocation

The term, resource allocation, has two distinctly different meanings. One meaning refers to allocating a resource such as forest land to a two or more designated uses. For example, forest land units could be allocated to timber production, recreation, etc. In the context of spatial decision support, we use the term, spatial allocation, to refer to the latter meaning of resource allocation. The second meaning, which is the one we use in the context of spatial decision support in order to reduce the ambiguity is in the sense of allocating management resources. This second meaning is concerned with allocating time, materials, personnel, budget to landscape elements to accomplish meanegement objectives such as protection, restoration, timber production, etc.
