Method Factsheet - Estimap

ESTIMAP is a consistent and flexible set of spatially-explicit models each of which can be run separately for the assessment of different ES at the European scale. They are all developed following the CICES classification (Haines-Young & Potschin, 2013) and framed in the ES cascade model which connects ecosystem structure and functioning to human well-being through the flow of ES. The models are dynamically linked to LUISA, the JRC land use modeling platform (Lavalle et al 2011). This provides the opportunity to evaluate the impact of different scenarios of land use changes on ES provision.
