Mapping Natural Capital - ECOMAPS

July 2014

ECOMAPS is a concept for providing a tool enabling national mapping of Natural Capital using CEH datasets, with Land Cover Map and CS field survey data providing core national datasets for a range of NC measures. The concept builds on the work carried out under the CS Integrated Assessment (IA). Various ideas/approaches to potential development are underway. These include Natural England support for production of a range of NC maps using the modelling techniques developed during and post IA. It is anticipated that the maps will be prototypes for any tool developed. Alternative funding sources are being sought for potential tool development.
