MAGIS solutions consist of a schedule of treatments for land management: harvest, prescription burning, restoration and other activities, a schedule of activities for the road network: construction, reconstruction, decommission AND the volume and path of any haul traffic. These results are displayed as maps, and are available in tabular form as well. Additionally, the values of each defined 'effects function' are available, both in the map display symbology (one can, for example, compare the net cost or the habitat designation or the vegetation conditions visually) and in the tabular reports.
