D6.6 – GIS application (Final version)
The GIS application works as the technical and innovative “translation” of the results derived from tasks 2.1 to 2.4 and will facilitate future development in other regions. This user’s guide was developed in order to present the methodology and the conceptual framework behind the GIS application. Its purpose is to provide guidance to potential users about the processes, adaptations, and input data sets.
This report has been prepared by DUTH, that is leading this task, and BTU CS & FNR provided insight regarding the adaptation of the geospatial data currently available soil data and their incorporation in the algorithm.
The SEEMLA GIS toolset includes geoprocessing models to automate and document the data management and spatial analysis for the identification and assessment of marginal lands in Europe. The application was developed to investigate land marginality and to select the crops that are appropriate in order to achieve sustainable biomass production for bioenergy.
