Photo-elicitation Method Factsheet

This method aims to translate the people's visual experiences and perceptions of landscapes in terms of ecosystem services. It has been particularly used to explore how landscape multi-functionality (defined as the capacity of ecosystems to provide ecosystem services to society) is related with public perceptions toward landscapes and ecosystem services (Garcia-Llorente et al., 2012). This is based on the idea that visual stimuli could be understood as a socially shared communication channel, and then, with potential to identify and analyse social perceptions of ecosystem services (Garcia-Llorente et al., 2012, Lopez-Santiago et al. 2014).
