Natuurwaardeverkenner (Nature Value Explorer)
The nature value explorer is a free webbased tool that makes it possible to calculate the impact of a project on ecosystem services in a qualitative, biophysical and monetary way. It quickly assesses the impact and makes it possible to compare scenarios and discuss with stakeholders. The tool is spatially explicit for Flanders, Belgium. The user draws the case study area on a map and draws the different measures that are planned in the scenario. The tool collects the necessary input data from national maps and calculates the supply and value of different ecosystem services. It also translates the results to more comprehensible indicators so the results can be used in the communication to the public.
