Visualisation tools for public participation in managing landscape change (VISULANDS)
This site in Northern Scotland, provides a diverse landscape of managed agriculture, moorland and forest land use within a varied topography. There is a Scottish Forestry Alliance funded restoration project (DarrochWids) which is expanding the area of native woodlands at the margins of an extensive Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) productive forest.
Forest Research produced spatial datasets to advise FCS on the initial restoration scheme, and close links are maintained with the Project Officer (Liz Shortall).
This is the key Forest Research study site, used to test all aspects of the project – including public participation.
