In this paper we present the Landscape Unit Mountain Pine Beetle Key (LuMPB Key) - a tool for assessing different mountain pine beetle (MPB) management scenarios on a landscape scale under various conditions. Based on a conceptual model of the simulation data we develop a multiple view interface which provides access to and exploration of the data. Different management scenarios can be compared and a given management scenario can be considered under varying simulation conditions, such as forest type, climate, and degree of initial beetle infestation. On the one hand we use a multiple view interface to provide understandable chunks of information. On the other hand we use it to communicate that different views of the data exist. Views are optionally linked together to support this awareness of possible different ways of looking at this data.
