Description

This will be a test run for gathering citizen science inputs on what ecosystem attributes are valued for contributing to cultural well being. Beneficiaries of these final ecosystem service attributes will be classified using the EPA's Final Ecosystem Goods and Services Classification System (FEGS-CS). User engagements with nature as a particular beneficiary type doing a particular activity in a specified ecosystem type will be ranked and the contribution to their overall well-being assessed. Inputs will be used to generate heat maps of where cultural value is being generated by ecosystem services. User identified locations will also serve as geo-caches where other users can find things in nature that other community members value.
