    v1 v2  
    44EwE6 now allows you to use Ecospace to search for optimum placement of marine protected areas (MPAs) that would maximize a user-defined objective function. This routine is implemented using the ''Spatial optimizations'' form (''Spatial dynamic (Ecospace) > Tools > Spatial optimizations''). 
    55 
    6 NOTE: Before using this routine you must already have defined an Ecosim scenario (see [[Ecosim menu.htm|Ecosim menu]]) and an Ecospace scenario (see [[Ecospace menu.htm|Ecospace menu]]). Load the scenarios from the Ecosim and Ecospace menus or from the Ecosim [[Image(wiki:EwEugImages:03000092.png)]] and Ecospace [[Image(wiki:EwEugImages:030000B4.png)]] shortcut buttons.

    99100The '''Layers''' panel is also found on the '''Map Input''' tab. Available options will change, depending on whether the '''Seed cell''' or '''Importance layer''' search is selected. Note that the Layers panel has a root directory format, which can be collapsed or expanded using the plus and minus icons. Use the eye symbols to show [[Image(wiki:EwEugImages:Eye_open.PNG)]] or hide [[Image(!wiki:EwEugImages:Eye_closed.PNG)]] layers on the '''Map'''.

    123 When '''Importance layer''' has been selected on the''' Configuration''' tab, the '''Layers''' panel (see image below) is used to set '''Importance layers''' (users do not set seed cells). Note that importance layers are not used in calculation of the objective function, but rather are used to give greater importance to certain cells during random selection of seed cells. There are a number of ways to read in data for setting or importing importance layers. See [[Setting importance layers.htm|Setting importance layers]] for full details on importing data importance layers. See [wiki:EwEugSpatialOptimizationProcedures Spatial optimization procedures] for more on Importance layers.

    125126After you have imported the importance layers, they will be displayed in the '''Layers''' panel. 
     
    1501513.You can also use the '''Best (%)''' window on the '''Results''' tab to filter which results are displayed on the map (e.g., if 10% is selected, only results that produced the top 10% of objective function values will be displayed). 
    151152 
    152 Final filtered results can be saved to csv file using the '''Save...''' button. The final filtered results can be converted to MPAs on the base map using the''' Convert to MPA''' button. This will result in MPAs with the highest count in the selected Best (%) being placed on the [wiki:EwEugBasemap Basemap] for the current Ecospace scenario. Original MPAs can be reset using the '''Reset MPAs''' button.
