1. I want to report some attributes by :
Drought exposure (Strata 1)
Watersheds (Strata 2);
Viewsheds (Strata 3);
Riverine zone (Strata 4);
Management zones (wildlife, camping, etc.) (Strata 5).
Transitions are distinct according to drought exposure strata and forest management actions (targets) are distinguished by Management zones.
There are then five ways of splitting the landscape and they are not mutually exclusive, i.e., they overlay each other. How should I organize the strata in ST-SIM so I can report by the different watersheds, by the different viewsheds, by riverine zone or by management zones? St-Sim allows only three levels of strata, no? Do they need to be embedded (hierarchically organized like Russian dolls)?
