The application uses the BioClimSol diagnosis tool, hence why its name is "FORECCAsT by BioClimSol". The BioClimSol tool is developped by the CNPF. It is made up of two modules:
The BioClimSol method includes a climate, topographic and soil diagnosis, the reforestation module, climate vigilance maps specific to each tree variety and their associated ICS equations. The sylvicultural recommendations it suggests have to be validated by local representatives.

We chose the BioClimSol tool in our application because it is widely tested in France (30 studies since 2009) and well-known by forest stakeholders. Moreover, it was successfully tested in 2015 in the PNRHL and some field results were already available for this territory before the FORECCAsT project even started
