JNCC and Environment Systems have recently published the first of two case studies that form part of the EO4cultivar project, a UK Space agency funded project under their international partnership programme.
The case studies demonstrate how combining earth observation data with local knowledge can be used to assess the ecosystem services that contribute to resilient production systems. They also demonstrate how this information can be brought into decision making at relevant scales within multi-functional landscapes.
Outputs include: an online ecosystem service mapper; management guides designed to demonstrate how ecosystem service models can inform an ecosystem approach and target nature-based solutions at a landscape scale; and reports outlining methods used in case study development. The underlying datasets are open access and available to download.
The case study can be found here.
