									Adaptation Modeling Tutorial

    This presentation will step you
   through the process of using the
    MapViewer to run the species
          adaptation model.
                             Load Mapset

  1. Select „US‟ and Click Load

--When you first access the
MapServer, you must select a
region: USA or China (prc).
--You can switch between
regions at any time.
--Whenever you resize the
viewer window, it will reset to
this page
Zoom in to the Region of Interest
2. Select the “Zoom In” tool
3. Click/Drag the mouse to create a box
   covering the Pacific Northwest region
           Select a User-Defined Layer
   4. Select User-Defined Adaptation
       –     Type = Grass_Annual_CoolSeason
       –     Species = Annual Ryegrass
       –     Version = 1

--If you click “Refresh Map” at
this point, you will recall any
previously run model to the
viewer (if any).
              Run the Model Interface
  5.    Click on the “Wrench”
  6.    Click the “Run” button.

--The model inputs window opens
with the parameters that were used
to create the selected layer (if it
-- If no previous data exists, the
defaults for Tall Fescue are used.
-- The data values turn blue
indicating they are from a previously
run/submitted form.
                    Examine the Results
   The viewer updates with a map of species adaptation
   classifications based on the inputs to the model. These
   results indicate that western Washington and Oregon are
   characterized by moderately adapted with some well-adapted
   areas. Areas of central and eastern Washington and Oregon
   are mostly characterized by marginally and not-adapted

--Click the legend tool in the toolbar
to display the color legend in place
of the layer list.
--You MUST restore the Layer list
(turn off the legend) in order for the
model to run correctly.
              Investigate the Factors
     Let‟s say that you know for a fact that this particular grass
     species is well adapted for the entire Western Oregon
     region. For some reason, the model is giving you mostly
     only moderately adapted results. Use the interface to
     examine the effects of each of the parameters (climate
     and soils) to determine which parameter is limiting the
7.     In the model inputs window,
       turn OFF the checkbox for
       Soil Drainage and Soil Ph.
8.     Click Run.
        -- Notice how the Western
       Oregon region is now
       predominately Well-Adapted.
       This change indicates that the
       parameters for Soil Drainage
       and Soil Ph are the most
       limiting factors.
                        Adjust the Model

    9.    In the model inputs window, turn ON
          the checkbox for Soil Ph. Click Run.
    10.   Adjust the Well-Adapted thresholds
          for Ph to 5.2-8.3. Click Run and
          note the changes.
    11.   Turn ON the checkbox for Soil
          Drainage. Click Run.
    12.   Adjust the Well-Adapted thresholds
          for Soil-Drainage to MWD-WD. Click
          Run and note the changes

--In this manner you can continually refine the
parameters of the model until you get the
results you like.
                        Save the Settings
   13. In the model inputs
       window, Click the Save
   14. Enter custom text to
       describe these model
       settings (do NOT use
       quotes „ or “ in your text).

--The value you enter will be used to update
the “Version” text in the Layer list of the viewer.
--The settings will also be stored as a Cookie
on your computer that can be recalled later (if
     Recall previously run Settings
   When you open the model inputs window, the table
    values are set to whatever data are resident on the
    server. These may be yours or some other users
    who may have modified the same User-Defined
   Click “Load” to restore the settings that you used
    when you last ran the model.
   This only works when done from the SAME computer
    on which you ran the model.
     Save Results in a Different Version

1.   Select the User-Defined type--species--version that you
     wish to modify.
2.   Open the model inputs window.
3.   Make the changes to the model.
4.   Select a NEW User-Defined type--species--version that
     you want your results saved to.
5.   In the model inputs window, click Run.
6.   When satisfied…click Save.
