Key2® Territory Biodiversity

Ecological continuum on a territorial scale: development of the green and blue belt

WHY ?
  • Model ecological continuum and disruption areas within a territory
  • 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
  • Operating site audit
  • Ecological continuum analysis as part of a territorial project
WHICH APPROACH ?

1. Green and blue belt qualification and recommended improvements

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

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


 STRENGTHS
  • 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 tool using programming software
