GeoVisionary was developed by Virtalis in collaboration with the British Geological Survey as specialist software for high-resolution visualisation of spatial data. The initial design goal was to ensure that data sets for large regions, national to sub-continental, could be loaded simultaneously and at full resolution, while allowing real-time interaction with the data.
The purpose of this tool is to help the user to understand how resilient habitats are anywhere in the county. This is important because vulnerable, less resilient habitats are less likely to deliver the range of services we need (flood prevention and clean water for example).
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.
