The Environmental Mitigation and Suitability Modeler (EMSM) provides input based on users’ needs, including which geographic information layers and analysis features to apply to the model. Users can select factors relevant to their specific analysis, weigh the importance of each layer, and view a map that presents priority areas for them. In addition to supporting identifying potential mitigation projects, local conservation partners and local governments will use EMSM to prioritize where their conservation efforts should be focused.
