Project Link Operational Polar Bear Den Mapping: SnowDens-3D
DescriptionSnowDens-3D is a snowdrift den-habitat decision-support tool based on the recently developed polar bear snowdrift den habitat mapping tool (Liston et al., 2016). The decision-support software ingests available topographic and weather data, and provides output maps of high-probability den locations, for any year of interest, including the current year. The software is available to end-users interested in polar bear management activities, and is available to help “fine tune” habitat search parameters and locations when managers are looking for likely denning areas.
