Land Treatment Exploration Tool

The Land Treatment Exploration Tool (LTET) is designed to assist land managers with the rangeland restoration and/or rehabilitation planning process. The tool assembles information about a site, including past treatments from the Land Treatment Digital Library, and wildfires recorded within the site. You can also extract data from multiple GIS layers to give you a comprehensive overview of your site. Using statistical similarity indices you can find past treatments that most closely match your planned treatment area based on climate and topography indices. Similar past treatments can be explored and compared to your planned treatment and help you identify not only the best path forward, but also justification for the methods used in your own treatment.
