Abstract: ESTIMAP is a set of separate process-based models that assess the supply, demand and flow of different ES, for use within a GIS. Currently there are eight models for assessing air quality regulation, protection from soil erosion, coastal protection, water retention, pollination, habitat for breeding birds, recreation and cultural services, and bird richness of pest regulators. The models are linked to LUISA, the JRC’s land use modelling platform, enabling analysis of land use change scenarios. Although developed at the European scale, the models can be downscaled to the local level, and the recreation, pollination and air quality models are being used by several of the OpenNESS case studies. Data preparation can be intensive, but only a moderate level of GIS expertise is required.
