How to Model Percentage Increase in Wetlands in Arc

Question asked by rdg3191 on Aug 19, 2014

Hi all!

 

 

Im writing my thesis on valuing how an increase in woody wetlands will reduce flooding from storm surge in Louisiana. The first step requires showing a 10% , 20%, and 40% increase in the density of woody wetlands from the NLCD 2011 dataset.  Since the density of the woody wetlands isnt shown in the raster data, how should I go about doing this?  By using a National Wetlands Inventory as a map to reference where those increases should occur according to historical data?

 

Thanks for our time!
