MARMAP System Partnership
A primary purpose of MARMAP System Partnership is to
develop sound methodology and appropriate software for the quantitative
analysis and interpretation of multi-categorical raster maps and cellular
surfaces (inferential geospatial informatics) involving landscape pattern
analysis, multiscale landcover landuse change detection, accuracy assessment,
critical area detection and delineation, disease mapping and geographic
surveillance, prioritization and ranking without having to integrate
multiple indicators, and a few more. It will be nice to see you participate
in one capacity or the other.
