ApexRMS is a team of scientists and software developers focussed upon designing and delivering state-of-the-art ecological models and decision support systems for natural resource management.
We provide consulting services and software solutions to government, industry, and non-governmental organizations across North America. Our focus areas include landscape ecology, vegetation and wildlife.
The key services we provide include:
- ecological modeling
- decision support system development
- data analysis and interpretation
- scientific workshop facilitation
February 12, 2014: State-and-transition simulation model online conference presentation at the Society for Range Management
On February 12th at the 2014 Society for Range Management annual conference, Apex RMS delivered an online presentation on using state-and-transition simulation models to evaluate alternative land managment scenarios.
December 13, 2013: ST-Sim, State-and-Transition Simulation Model Framework Version 2.0, now available for free download
Version 2.0 of ST-Sim, a spatially-explicit State-and-Transition Simulation Model framework, is now available for free download. This version includes fully integrated spatially-explicit capabilities with the ability to work with raster data sets for both model inputs and outputs. A number of important new features have been added to this version including the ability to track pools of stocks (e.g. carbon) and flows between pools (e.g. carbon fluxes). Documentation for ST-Sim is also available online.
August 30, 2013: Upcoming State-and-Transition Simulation Model Course
On September 9th and 10th, Apex will be delivering a 2 day introductory training course on modeling landscape vegetation dynamics using Version 1.4 of ST-Sim, a spatially explicit State-and-Transition Simulation Model Framework.
February 17, 2013: Online demonstration of the new ST-Sim state-and-transition simulation modelling software
An online demonstration of the new spatial features in the ST-Sim modeling framework is now available for download.
February 15, 2013: State-and-transition simulation modeling publication released
The proceedings of the First Landscape State-and-Transition Simulation Modeling Conference are now available for free download as a U.S. Forest Service General Technical Report. This volume includes an article by Daniel and Frid (2012) outlining the history and approach behind state-and-transition simulation models (STSMs); it also includes several example applications using the STSM approach.
