MedAction Modeller     Warning - under construction

The MedAction modelling system allows you to choose between various physical and socio-economic landuse predictor data sets. Depending upon which datasets you choose will obviously have an important influence over the modelling results.

Physical Landuse predictorsSocio-economic Landuse predictors
Soil type Height above sea level
Quality of soil in terms of physical properties Frequency of night-time lights observation
Biomass Distance to nearest built-up area
Average temperature in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Distance to nearest canal
Average monthly precipitation in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Distance to nearest airport
Height above sea level Distance to nearest river
Population Density of railway stations
Dominant agricultural landuse Density of the communications network
Soil type - specific to each agricultural landuse class Density of motorways and dual carriageways
Soil quality - specific to each agricultural landuse class Density of main and minor roads
Biomass data Density of small towns
Average temperature data Distance to nearest extra large town
Average precipitation data Distance to nearest large town
Height above sea level Distance to nearest medium sized town
Terrain roughness Distance to nearest small town
River network density by size - irrigation water availability (add for aquifer bedrock) Locations of national parks
Population density Locations of built-up areas containing extra large town centres
Agriculture intensity and affluency
Level of Agricultural subsidy Locations of built-up areas containing large town centres
