Biomass production from Alpine grassland is one of the eight AlpES ecosystem services (ES). Results of the Alpine wide mapping of this ES were presented at the International Land Use Symposium on 3rd November 2017 in Dresden, Germany by the lead partner EURAC. The subject of this year’s conference was the use of spatial modelling and data visualisation to enlighten future sustainable policy making. During the event, fruitful discussions about the AlpES mapping approach were held and valuable knowledge exchange with the experts from the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development was achieved.
