To be able to construct a model which is calculating and displaying the spatial and temporal variation of the expected demand and production of fuelwood in the Cibodas Biosphere Reserve, Java, Indonesia, data concerning the fuelwood production of various land cover types, and the fuelwood demand or consumption in the area has to be collected and analysed first.
The fuelwood demand is determined by the population size and the fuelwood consumption per capita. Therefore, it is necessary to know where the settlements are located and the number of people inhabiting the settlements. As the population statistics refer to the smallest administrative unit in the area, the administrative unit map has to be compiled first and later on linked to the settlement map to calculate the population density (and thus the demand) per settlement.
