This paper presents a pilot effortto identify a methodology to more efficiently codify, quantify and illustratethe intrinsic values associated with ecological resources as expressed by stakeholders.Existing methodologies examine the value of ecological resources, but are oftencriticized for their monetary focus. Thesemethods generally produce quasi-market values for non-market resources.The natural and cultural resources associated with a national park are analyzedin terms of the expressed values of active stakeholders to quantitativelyproduce multiple dimensions of value for each resource relative to all others.The resulting abstract and graphical value-space quantitatively reflects stakeholderparticipation, reflects non-market intrinsic value, and proactively contributesto environmental management and decision making.
