RegioPower

    

Duration 02/2013 – 01/2015
Target For the international project RegioPower, GISCAME is applied for assessing ecosystem services, such as wood production, provision of food and fodder, soil erosion protection, carbon sequestration, landscape aesthetics, regulation of drought risk, and ecological integrity.
Additionally, a new add-on is being developed, which allows simulating scenarios regarding potential biomass provision. This Biomass Module calculates and visualizes the landscape’s potential to provide lignocellulosic biomass using land use data, yield tables, and additional information on ownership-type, protection status, and relief.
The consideration of larger Regions with the more complex biomass module would not have been possible with the old mapping technology. That is why a new technique for map processing was demanded, which allows working with regions of up to 500x500km extent and a processing time of seconds up to few minutes.
Background Integrated forestry planning at the regional scape faces the challenge of assessing forestry’s contribution to economic and ecological planning targets in the spatial context of other land uses. Regional planners and political decision-makers have to weigh between interests of different land use sectors, and between private interests and public demand for ecosystem services.
Regions Jyväskylä und Jamsa, Central-Finland
Kronoberg County, Southern Sweden
Westmecklenburg-Schwerin, Deutschland
Planning district Upper Elbe Valley/Eastern Ore Mountains, Germany
Osrednjeslovenska region, Slovenia
Tools GISCAME core system (ecosystem services evaluation)
Add-On Biomass Module (estimation of lignocellulosic biomass potential)
Add-On AAMS (merging of attribute layers, such as ownership type and protection areas)
OSM4GISCAME (import of linear landscape elements, harmonization of data formats)
Approach and Results On the basis of the results from the REGKLAM project, a new matrix for the evaluation of ecosystem services was integrated. Further matrices for the model regions were conducted.
In the course of expert workshops, requirements of planners were identified. On this basis a specification was developed. The Biomass Module was realized with the help of generic approaches. Therefore, the approach is transferable to further planning challenges, e.g. biomass estimations from corn or straw, with only small efforts.
In order to integrate large regions into the analyses, an innovative map editor technique was developed. It facilitates the scenario development for maps of large extent. Big data can now be processed in real-time.
At the RegioPower platform, the Biomass Module as well as further tools for biomass estimation is available for interested users. Predictions of future biomass amounts can be estimated and results can be compared. Doing so, long term strategies for biomass production under various management strategies can be developed.
