(2016): Software development and implementation of the forest management model MOSES
AUSTRIAN J FOR SCI. 2016; 133(4): 287-336.

We introduce MosesFramework, a holistic forest simulator that combines (i) stand generation, (ii) simulation and (iii) output visualization into one framework. The purpose of MosesFramework is to provide a user-friendly application that can be used for forest management planning by integrating all steps necessary for running simulations and visualizing the results. It combines different MOSES (MOdelling Stand rESponse) simulation tools for interactive and batch simulation with the stand generator STANDGEN. The stand generation procedures are based on widely used forest inventory techniques (angle count sampling, survey and full inventory). To be applicable in forest management applications, different thinning algorithms are included in the simulation process. The results of the simulation can be displayed in the output visualization component in tabular and graphical form. Output variables comprise silvicultural measures such as basal area, volume, quadratic mean diameter, as well as biomass measures of single tree compartments. Economic measures like harvest expenses and revenue are also part of the simulation output. All components are integrated in a user-friendly graphical user interface. We present the developed MosesFramework and show its application with an example from the forest company xxxForstverwaltung Wittgensteinxxx in Austria.
