Table 2. Summary statistics for the final landscape at the end of the 100 year planning horizon using a median dispersal distance of 40 km. Shown is the number of woodland caribou habitat patches, number of links, total preferred habitat area, and the overall landscape Equivalent Connected Area (ECA; a measure of woodland caribou habitat connectivity and area).

I worked with Andrew recently on a pilot project in his Eco Model. Andrew was a pleasure to work with. He delivered the project on a tight deadline, and to specifications. Andrew is a proven innovator, and a great communicator and I look forward to working with him more in the future.

Andrew is gifted in forestry and operations research and is very able in finding adequate optimization methods to difficult forest planning problems. In addition to these skills, he delivers nice software solutions. I very much look forward to opportunities to work with him again in the future.

Andrew worked on a tight deadline, delivered the project on time and to spec, and communicated well with us throughout.
— Dirk Kloss, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources
Andrew came to me highly recommended and he exceeded my expectations by delivering a significant contribution to my research program. Andrew worked on a research project for me during the Summer and Fall of 2015 during which he developed a model for conserving caribou habitat alongside timber harvests that improved on earlier models. He is both very reliable and intelligent

Eco Modelling was founded by Andrew B. Martin as a vehicle to work on significant forest management planning problems.
Our goal is to help planners make optimal management decisions. To this end, we make software tools that support these decisions.
We specialize in spatial modelling, wood-to-mill modelling, and harvest planning alongside species at risk.
We also consult on interesting projects in operations research, data acquisition and machine learning.
