Floradata provides mapping and qualitative and quantitative evaluation services for ecosystem services and benefits. Focusing on their benefits means that ecosystems are evaluated not just regarding their monetary value, but also for their sociocultural, health and nature conservation value. The analysis may be developed at different scales, ranging from broad scale ecosystem service evaluation based on land use cartography, to small scale, for instance evaluating the ecosystem services provided by single isolated trees, or using sample or inventory data to evaluate forest structure, ecosystem services and values for any tree population. This includes parameters like number of trees, distribution of tree diameters, species diversity, pest risk, invasive species, effects on pollution and health benefits, carbon sequestration and storage, surface runoff reduction, volatile organic compounds emission, and thermal regulation of buildings. The services we offer may also be relevant for any land planning action focusing on nature conservation, sustainability and environmental resilience, be it a local, municipal or regional action.
