PECMAN Software

    Peanut Curing Manager (PECMAN) is a decision support system that assists drying facility managers with inventory control. It schedules sampling and removal times, estimates time remaining on dryer and current moisture content. Cooperators have reported reduced drying costs and improved peanut quality.

    AGWA - Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment Tool

      The Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment (AGWA) tool is a GIS-based hydrologic modeling tool that uses commonly available GIS data layers to fully parameterize, execute, and spatially visualize results for the RHEM, KINEROS2, KINEROS-OPUS, SWAT2000, and SWAT2005 watershed runoff and erosion models. Accommodating novice to expert GIS users, it is designed to be used by watershed, water resource, land use, and resource managers and scientists investigating the hydrologic impacts of land-cover/land-use change in small watershed to basin-scale studies.

      Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP)

        Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) is designed to help land managers learn about the impacts of road systems on erosion and sediment delivery to streams. GRAIP couples analytical tools with an inventory process to build an approach to roads analysis that can be locally calibrated in a repeatable fashion and with minimal effort. The full scope of GRAIP includes methods to inventory roads and analyze the inventory for surface erosion, gully risk, landslide risk and stream crossing failure risks. Methods to measure road surface erosion from sample sites are also included.

        Data from: Range size, local abundance and effect inform species descriptions at scales relevant for local conservation practice

          This study describes how metrics defining invasions may be more broadly applied to both native and invasive species in vegetation management, supporting their relevance to local scales of species conservation and management. A sample monitoring dataset is used to compare range size, local abundance and effect as well as summary calculations of landscape penetration (range size × local abundance) and impact (landscape penetration × effect) for native and invasive species in the mixed-grass plant community of western North Dakota, USA.

            Spatial Modeling for Resources Framework (SMRF) was developed at the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) in Boise, ID, and was designed to increase the flexibility of taking measured weather data and distributing the point measurements across a watershed.

            Automated Water Supply Model (AWSM)

              Automated Water Supply Model (AWSM) was developed at the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Boise, ID, to streamline the workflow used to forecast the water supply of multiple water basins.
