This proposal aims to improve the effectiveness of public processes in planning, management, and design of sustainable forestry, with the aim of contributing to Best Practices for public involvement, more informed decision-making, and public acceptance in forest resource management. The research focuses in particular on developing the scientific basis for practical guidelines on 3D landscape visualisation as a uniquely powerful tool for communications, education, analysis, and design, and on using such tools to establish scientific thresholds of public acceptance for innovative forest management practices.
