Abstract

This project captures the process of developing a spatial assessment decision support tool for marine waters in the south east of Tasmania using existing data in conjunction with GIS mapping and Marxan. The decision support tool provides a starting point for stakeholders within the decision-making process by identifying potential marine users who may have conflicting values in association with locating sites for new developments or relocating existing ones. By undertaking this project within the pilot study region, we demonstrate a process that is applicable and could be replicated in other regions.
