Short description: The AFFOREST-sDSS should provide help to policy makers and afforestation planners to plan new forests on former arable soils in the environmentally most suitable way. However, the system can also be used for e.g. training sessions, university course work, and workshops. For more advanced use, experience with the ArcView GIS 3.2X software and the data formats used by this software is recommended.
