MARMAP

 

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.
