Dairy Processing Location Score: Goat and Sheep (Gabon - ~ 500 m)

The raster dataset consists of a 500 m score grid for dairy processing industry facilities siting, produced under the scope of FAO’s Hand-in-Hand Initiative, Geographical Information Systems - Multicriteria Decision Analysis for value chain infrastructure location.

The analysis is based on goat and sheep production potential using proximity to cities and goat and sheep density.

The score is achieved by processing sub-model outputs that characterize logistical factors: 1. Supply - Livestock distribution. 2. Infrastructure - Transportation network (accessibility) 3. Atlas AI Asset Wealth Index.

It consists of an arithmetic weighted sum of normalized grids (0 to 100): (”Goat and Sheep Density” * 0.4) + (“Major Cities Accessibility” * 0.4) + (”Asset Wealth” *0.2).
