A case study demonstrating how outputs from the EcoServ-GIS tool can be used at a local scale to direct local planning, land management and habitat enhancement programmes in the Horsham area. As a result of these mapping activities, particular ecosystem services in Chesworth Farm, St Leonards Forest and Christ’s Hospital were enhanced and improved. The EcoServ-GIS tool was developed by Durham Wildlife Trust in 2013 to help map the multiple benefits provided by the natural environment.
