Key2® District Biodiversity - green and blue belt

Ecological continuum on an urban scale: development of the green and blue belt

WHY ?
  • Model ecological continuum and disruption areas on the scale of a district
  • Assess the ecological functionality of corridors and their impact on the preservation of local species
AS PART OF WHICH MISSIONS​ ?
  • Project management assistance, biodiversity and Urban integration of nature
  • Advising developers
  • Ecological continuum modeling as part of the updating of urban planning documents
WHICH APPROACH ?
 

1. Establishment of a grading system making that reflects the impact of the different areas on the ecological continuum

2. Mathematical modeling of ecological continuum supported by field expertise and land usage data

3. GIS mapping of herbaceous, tree & aquatic zones and ecological corridors


STRENGTHS
  • One guarantee: internal expertise in ecology combined with field inventories allow 2EI to model ecological disruption and continuum areas
  • Tool making it possible to determine the evolution of your territory’s green and blue belt based on the GISs
  • Rapid map modeling thanks to the development of an automated internal tool using programming software
