Step 4: Explore an Interactive Visualization
To facilitate a deeper understanding of roadside revegetation, this Visualization tool demonstrates the stepwise process and illustrates potential results in different geographic zones over time. This tool is provided for educational and illustrative purposes only.
The interactive visualization demonstrates potential changes to roadside revegetation across four time intervals (0, 1, 5 and 20 years) in three distinct ecological zones in the United States (Western Region, Mountain Region, and Eastern Region). Using your mouse, select the red arrow displayed in the "Year" and "Ecological Zone" slider bars and drag-and-move the arrow to the desired year or zone. The visualization image will refresh with each movement.
Information about limiting factors is displayed for five (5) year visualizations only. Only a sampling of limiting factors is presented in the interactive visualization. Using your mouse, select a limiting factor link to display associated information on top of the image. Or, select a radio button to toggle the images for "Slope Gradient" and "Aspect".
The images presented in this demonstration are generic "snapshots" of the regions and are provided for informational and illustrative purposes only.
