Methods to Determine Stratification, v1.0

ALM

The module provides the methods to be used to divide the project area into discrete strata, based on the delineation of areas within which the value of a chosen variable X is reasonably homogenous. Depending on the nature of the variable, and the time span of interest, homogeneity may be stated in terms of current values of X only, or may include processes leading to changes in X over time.
