QuantiAmenity - Co-benefit valuation of urban and peri-urban nature for planning water management

software
posted on 2024-02-29, 16:19 authored by Roland LöweRoland Löwe

Computation of recreational value of NBS in populated areas. The tool creates a map that indicates for each location what the amenity value of implementing an NBS in that location would be.

Values can be computed for any location covered by the input data rasters that cover the entire Europe.

The input datasets are provided in "./data" alongside with their particular license terms.

Input parameters to the model:

  • size of the NBS in ha
  • centre coordinate for the map (latitude, longtitude in WGS84)
  • map extent, defined as distance from the centre coordinate in m
  • choice of:
    - whether amenity values should be exported in local currency (accounting for purchase power differences, i.e. values will e.g. be lower in Easter Europe than in Germany), or in international USD
    - whether log values should be exported.

To execute, run "main".

The result of the calculation is nbs_value_adjusted in EURO / year. The function takes two user inputs - area of the anticipated NBS and location (the user could e.g. click on a map location)
