An abstract modelling process often supports evidence-based decision making. Nonetheless, there are inherent difficulties for stakeholders in understanding complex scenario modelling. It is important to develop communication systems that support understanding of complex spatial decision models. This research used a Land Use Allocation (LUA) process, in the context of future agricultural land use under climate change scenarios, as a study in complex environmental modelling. The primary objective was to identify interactive options tha..
