Data, results, users: how does the LANDSUPPORT platform work?

By clicking on the “Access to the DSS platform” button on this website’s home page, you are re-directed to the actual LANDSUPPORT platform: you log in, select the tool you want to use and make your query. But what is behind this interface? How does the system transforms raw data into maps and indicators?

The first infographic shows the path from data to users: geographical data are gathered together in a geodatabase, or data tier. Data are then processed in the logic tier, & answers brought to users through a presentation tier.

The second infographic shows how GIS data layers are combined to provide results in the forestry, nitrates and climate resilience tools.
