For the moment, I am busy doing a lot of data science and engineering tasks. As a result, work on the front end has not been prioritized. However, the prediction models have been used in several applications, and we are consolidating that code for server operations.

Current projects#

These projects are initiated by hammerdirt.


A review of the ecosystem services provided by a local state managed forest in Switzerland
