Fuzzy Logic & Probability

a "Fuzzy Distance" based on data

Imagine that we have a rare snail and we want to protect it. We can set aside land, but the more land we set aside the more money we spend and more political enemies we make, etc, etc.

Copy the folder ...\Demo\Fuzzy to your own folder and open the fuzzy-bayes

So where do these critters like to live?



Where would you put the buffer? What distance maximizes the likelihood of including snails given the size of the buffer?

How about aspect?

Where is the highest liklihood of finding snails? Which quadrant? What controls the "liklihood?"
