Learning Anthropogenic Ecotope Mapping (AEM)

NOTE: This portion of the AEM site is under development and INCOMPLETE.


This area of the site provides training materials used for teaching  AEM. Please note however, the materials provided here are insufficient, by themselves, to teach the standard AEM methodology, which requires intensive site-based collaborative training to produce consistent and repeatable results across sites and time periods. These materials are provided strictly for informational purposes, not as the basis for standardized training in the AEM system.

For updated information on standard AEM training, please contact info@ecotope.org.
