LUMASS - Land-Use Management Support System


LUMASS is designed to provide support for two high level aspects of land management: i) land use impact assessment and ii) spatial planning. The former aspect is supported by its spatial system dynamics modelling framework and the latter by its spatial optimisation framework.

LUMASS is mainly focused on processing and displaying raster data. However, it also provides selected functionality of displaying (polygon) vector data and 3D point clouds. Spatial optimisation scenarios can also be run on polygon vector layers. Download the LUMASS User Guide and find out more yourself!
