Create Bayesian Belief Networks

We then developed a Bayesian belief network for each land use to organize the specific factors of suitability. Then, through a series of surveys, stakeholders provided more detailed information about the relative importance of each of the factors. This information helped the researchers parameterize the suitability models.

Example Bayesian belief network

Sample Bayesian belief networks for forestry, agriculture, and two scales of conservation for the Casco Bay/Lower Androscoggin watershed.
