Use impact assessment and management system on the forest recreation site from an ecological perspective: Recreation opportunity spectrum as a tool of forest recreation site planning and management



Use impact assessment and management system on the forest recreation site from an ecological perspective: Recreation opportunity spectrum as a tool of forest recreation site planning and management



Journal of Korean Forestry Society 81(4): 372-382



Recreation planning is essential activitiy to meet changing demands and to protect the resources. The recreation opportunity specturm (ROS) system is a principal part of a recreational management planning. In this study, the basic concepts and tenets of the ROS system described and reviewed the feasibility of applying to forest recreation planning to the Korean national forest. In Korea, the forest land as a major recreation place has used without the rational planning process. The control for the laissez-faire use on the forest area, the classification of recreational opportunity settings is the most important process and then it make a useful tool for providing proper recreational opportunity and site development guidance. Opportunity settings classification can help maintain diversity and enhance protection of forest resources. It can also improve the quality of recreational experiences and the management action guidances. GIS technology using the ARC/INFO could be useful in current attempts to identify analysis areas for predictive modeling of forest recreation site planning.
