Relevant data was researched and aggregated into GIS layers. These incorporated data relating to connectivity, priority habitats and land cover and intactness, as well as species records and designated site information. The layers were then brought together to develop an integrated map.
This approach allowed the biodiversity-related priority actions for each geographic area to be highlighted – such as wetland creation, species-specific enhancements and natural flood management – through the creation of individual heat maps.
Ecosulis developed an interactive mapping platform to ensure the biodiversity-related data was easily accessible for the Severn Trent team. This allowed each data layer to be accessed, as well as relevant notes relating to each grid square. The aim was to provide top-level information that could be used to inform regional funding strategies.
This approach to strategic biodiversity enhancement can be taken to inform funding allocation from the local to regional level, improving efficiency and delivering better outcomes. It can also be used to inform investment in nature recovery.
