Site Search Or Selection

Site selection involves identifying elements of the landsccape that are best suited for some specific purpose such as designation as a biodiversity reserve or designation for timber harvesting. The problem of site selection is closely related to that of spatial allocation, but the two are sufficiently different to justify maintaining a distinction. For example, whereas spatial allocation is typically concerned with assigning a set of alternative uses to all parcels in some region, site selection attempts to identify a relatively few parcels within the general matrix of parcels that are optimal for some specific purpose.
