A stand-alone application developed using Visual Basic and ArcObjects. It was developed to provide a user friendly framework for systematic protected areas network design to ArcGIS users
Through the use of P.A.N.D.A. one can explore different hypothetical configurations of a system of protected areas in the planning area.
The user can edit a scenario by interactively modifying the status of the planning units among 4 managed categories (Included, Protected, Available, Excluded). He or she can then explore the target table to see the resulting changes in conservation achievements of the new scenario and the associated costs.
