Ecosystem service mapping

Ecosystem service mapping is the creation of a (cartographic) representation of (quantified) ecosystem service indicators in geographic space and time (Potschin et al. 2016; Potschin & Burkhard 2015). It is therefore a method of making the information derived from the assessment process (visually) accessible, especially for the inexperienced user, as required by the definition of assessment. Depending on scale and extent of information a figurative representation (charts, diagrams) can also be sufficient.

In the AlpES project it is differentiated between “mapping of spatial units/ecosystems providing ES” and “(cartographic) representation of ES state, supply, flow, demand through indicators, etc.”.
