This toolbox contains maps of supply and demand of a few ecosystem services and the GIS tools to make such maps. The tools are targeted at the European Union level and provide a broad picture of ecosystem services supply and demand. Tools are moderately complex methods for mapping, that upscale findings from detailed process-based models to the European Union scale, based on land use and biophysical characteristics.
