Spatial Scales

The PEOPLES Resilience Framework defines components of functionality using a geospatial‐temporal distribution within its geographical influence boundaries. Interdependencies between and among these components are key to determining the resilience of communities. PEOPLES enables the use of various community resilience indices that integrate, over space and time, the system functionality and services of a community in a landscape setting.
