Abstract: Army Training and Testing Area Carrying Capacity (ATTACC) is the standard Integrated Training Area Management (!TAM) methodology for estimating training land carrying capacity by relating training load, land condition, and land maintenance practices. Various decision support tools have been developed to simplify and automate the ATTACC methodology. These decision support tools include the Workplan Analysis Module (WAM), ATTACC Integration Module (AIM), ATTACC functions of the Range Facility Management Support System (RFMSS), and Land Condition Module (LCM). The Land Condition Model (LCM) is an Arc View GISbased software application that estimates changes in land condition associated with mission activity. LCM automates the ATTACC methodology for generating land condition curves. To implement the LCM, an LS factor data layer is required that adequately represents complex landscapes typically found on military installation. The ATTACC LS Factor Calculator automates the development of LCM-required LS Factor data. The ATTACC LS Factor Calculator is an Arc View extension.
