Matlab code for landscape optimization model used in the paper "Optimal Conservation with Spatially-Dependent Benefits and Asymmetric Information":
Download the Matlab .m files SpatiallyDependentBenefitsModel.m and findoptimal.m to the same folder. In Matlab change the working directory to the folder with the two .m files. Open SpatiallyDependentBenefitsModel.m and adjust model inputs if so desired (the output that can be varied is indicated with a "User Input" label). Finally, run SpatiallyDependentBenefitsModel.m (this foile calls the function findoptimal.m).
