dc.description.abstractThis study represents the first attempt of integration, within a Forest Management Plan (FMP), of a Geographic Information System (GIS) and an Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) approach for the selection of the most suitable logging method. It is important to underline that the developed methodology is applicable worldwide in each environmental context in which there is a need for planning the intervention and selecting from among several possible logging methods or harvesting systems. Schematically, the main aims of this study were: (i) to develop a GIS-AHP method based on open-access GIS software; (ii) to compare the results of the simulations developed from the statements of two different groups of experts from around the world, to determine the reliability of the predictive probability of the method. The selection of the extraction methods performed with RTS (experts from research and technical sector) input data showed that the most suitable option in the major part of the study area was the cable skidder, followed by the cable yarder, and finally the forwarder. The extraction system selection performed with OS (people from the operative sector) input data revealed limited differences. Thus, considering what was reported above, it is possible to assert that the applied GIS-AHP methodology showed good performance and high consistency in the selection of the best alternatives among different extraction methods. The idea of comparing the results obtained from a survey based on a pool of researchers and forest engineers (RTS) was taken as a target simulation to be evaluated. The method based on data derived from a pool of expert forest operators (OS) was used to check for the results of the other simulation. This is an innovation in these kinds of studies. The results from the consistency check were encouraging, considering that for 51 sub-compartments, only two changed the selected extraction system between RTS and OS.it
