EcoServ-GIS is a Geographic Information System (GIS) toolkit for mapping ecosystem services at a county or regional scale. It uses input GIS/map data to generate fine-scale maps that illustrate human need or demand for ecosystem services as well as the capacity of the natural environment to provide them.
Methodology Once the evidence has been evaluated, the partnership then works to develop a series of conceptual models or ‘rules’ that can be used to define areas of the catchment most likely to play a critical role in the provision of the different ecosystem services, singly or in combination. These priority areas are locations […]
