SORTIE workshop

Tuesday February 22, 2022  8:30am - Wednesday February 23, 2022 12:00pm

- Online

Course Description 

The BVRC is offering an online workshop to learn SORTIE. SORTIE is a spatially-explicit, individual-based stand dynamics model. We will walk participants through how to run SORTIE using the traditional GUI and within a newly developed interface in R software (rsortie). During the workshop, we will guide participants through real-world examples using the rsortie interface, and video tutorials will be freely available online for partipants to view prior to the workshop. These videos will provide the necessary background on getting started in SORTIE. Partipants will leave the workshop with an understanding of how to implement example silviculture prescriptions in SORTIE in either the GUI or rsortie. Questions regarding the workshop can be emailed to sortie@bvcentre.ca
