Data for: A performance-based planning approach integrating supply and demand of urban ecosystem services
The dataset contains the maps of the case study described in the paper "A performance-based planning approach integrating supply and demand of urban ecosystem services", published in Landscape and Urban Planning. The maps describe the supply and demand of urban ecosystem services in the city of Trento (Italy) and show how ecosystem service assessments can support the implementation of an innovative performance-based planning approach. The dataset includes seven maps of ecosystem service supply (air purification, food supply, habitat provision, microclimate regulation, noise mitigation, recreation, runoff mitigation), five maps of ecosystem services demand (food supply, microclimate regulation, noise mitigation, recreation, runoff mitigation), and two synthesis maps. The synthesis maps serve as operational tools to implement the performance-based planning approach proposed and tested in the paper. The "combined ES supply map" provides an overall assessment of the expected negative impacts of urban transformations on ecosystem services, while the "integrated ES demand map" identifies the priority ecosystem services to enhance in different areas of the city. Values of the indicators in the supply and demand maps and in the "combined ES supply map" range from 0 to 1. The "integrated ES demand map" is a categorical map with classes indicated by integer values from 1 to 6. For a description of the classes, please refer to the original paper. All maps are provided in Geotiff format, 20-m resolution, projected coordinate system EPSG:3044, except for the map of habitat provision. They cover the whole administrative territory of Trento.
Steps to reproduce
Methods and data to produce the supply and demand maps are described in the Supplementary Material of the paper. Methods to produce the synthesis maps are described in the method section of the paper.
