5-Running Probability of Ungulate Utilization FIS Model

5. Running Probability of Ungulate Utilization FIS Model

Task 1: Run the Probability of Ungulate Utilization (grazing capacity) three input FIS

  • Step 1: Click on the MATLAB R2012a icon to start the program.

3C

  • Step 2: Browse to the location where GrazingCapacity_3input is stored.

Ungulate_FIS_1

  • Step 3: In the command window type FIS_IT and the press enter:

The below dialog box should open and prompt you to select an FIS:

Ungulate_FIS_2

  • Step 4: Select GrazingProb_3input.fis

The below dialog box should open and prompt you to select Vegetation_Preference Input Raster:

Ungulate_FIS_3

  • Step 5: Path to the GrazingCapacityFIS/Input folder and selected the input_veg.asc

The below dialog box should open and prompt you to load slope input raster:

ungulate_FIS_4

  • Step 6: Path to the GrazingCapacityFIS/Input folder and selected the input_slope.asc.

The below dialog box should open and prompt you to load water source input raster:

Ungulate20dist_water

  • Step 7: Path to the GrazingCapacityFIS and selected the distance_to_water.asc

The FIS should now start calculating… this may take a several minutes.

The below dialog box should open and prompt you to save your FIS

Ungulate_FIS_save

Then it will need to save the FIS Grid to a File. This will take even a bit longer.

Task 2: Convert the FIS output ASCII raster to .img raster

  • Step 1: Open ArcMap
  • Step 2: load the output FIS output ASCII
  • Step 3: Use the ASCII to Raster command

ASCII_to_Raster

  • Step 4: Output the FIS grid to the output folder. This is the final step of the probability of ungulate utilization.

Escalante_Prob_Ungulate_distribution

The final output should look something like the above.
