SwissED II applications (Swiss Environmental Domains 2010)


Duration: November 2011 - on-going

Swiss Environmental Domains (SwissED) is an environmental classification of key climatic, geologic and topographic variables influencing both natural and anthropogenic processes at various scales. It represents a new spatial framework to analyse data about our environment (e.g. biodiversity, land cover, demography, agriculture, economical activities) that is not replacing existing ones but simply complementing them.
