Bayesian Belief Network Habitat and Population Modeling
WII has created habitat supply models to forecast the availability, quality, and distribution of critical habitats for species such as caribou and mountain goats. To extend the value of the habitat models, we create population models that forecast the response of an animal population under differing landscape management scenarios.

Our models are created in a workshop setting with species experts and stakeholders to ensure that all available knowledge is incorporated. This approach also encourages critical stakeholder involvement in planning.

GIS - Caribou Location Map GIS
The GIS department at WII specializes in spatial database preparation, spatial data management, GIS project management, data modeling, and innovative cartographic production. We use industry standard software (ESRI, Netica, SELES, Microsoft) for data input layer acquisition, validation, creation, and analysis.

Our customization capabilities range from simple geoprocessing scripts to sophisticated habitat supply models integrating several software packages.

Range Availability Chart Data Management and Analysis
Proper data organization and large storage capacity are key to meeting the demands of our clientele. For the past 6 years, WII has collected inventory and spatial information for projects ranging in size from a few hectares to over 12 million hectares.

The data management procedures we have developed to handle this volume of data provide a solid base from which to conduct a wide range of analyses. Our staff is experienced in designing and applying resource-based analyses to produce robust, dependable results that meet your information needs.

Field Verification Applied Research and Development
WII is primarily associated with the development and verification of decision tools to support explicit and transparent use of science. In fact, more than half of our annual resources are dedicated to improving these tools as this relatively young field evolves.

As a member and research associate of the Resources North Association, WII has access to a broad network of researchers. We leverage this resource to build interdisciplinary research teams that cooperatively design our decision support tools.

WII provides support for the planning renewable resource extraction using our standard inventory and habitat monitoring tools. This helps our clients fulfill their planning obligations and can sometimes form the substantive basis for development permits.

Our habitat supply models are also useful in supporting the development of multiple resource value management plans.

Fish Trapping Fish and Wildlife Inventory
When planning your resource extraction operation, accurate biological information is a must. WII's experienced field staff provide year-round fish and wildlife field data collection services.

For operational purposes we can provide you with stream classifications, environmental monitoring, and listed species surveys. In a conservation/scientific context, we offer services such as animal censuses, telemetry, mortality investigations, and electrofishing.
