    Description

    This report evaluated 24 computer-aided decision support systems (DSS) that can support management decision-making in forest ecosystems. It compares the scope of each system, spatial capabilities, computational methods, development status, input and output requirements, user support availability, and system performance. Questionnaire responses from the DSS developers (who have sole responsibility for their content) provide the basis for four summary tables comparing system capabilities. The responses are also presented verbatim for reference. This evaluation aids potential users of decision support systems in determining which system most closely fulfills their needs.
