Ecosystem Health

Explore our work on the mapping of ecosystem health
at multiple spatial scales.

Soil Mapping

Mapping of soil functional properties such as
pH, soil organic carbon (SOC), texture
and indicators of soil condition.

Statistical analysis

Read about and explore our tools for statistical analysis,
including prediction of soil properties from
soil NIR/MIR spectral libraries.

Climate Change

We conduct analysis of various indicators that are
being used in the planning of smallholder
adaptation planning in Africa.

Welcome to the Landscapes Portal!

Our mission is to further the application of GeoScience in assessing coupled social-ecological processes in landscapes.

The Landscapes Portal provides users with a platform for visualizing and sharing spatial data and maps, as well as map stories.

Mapping the source of soil erosion

Conventional soil erosion models are generally based on the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE), or a revised (RUSLE) or modified (Williams and Berndt (1977)) version of the USLE. Betrie et al (2011) used the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT), ...

Add geotagged photos to your map

Adding geotagged photos to your map can be a powerful way to visualize the landscape that you are mapping, or even as a way to validate your mapping outputs. In the Landscapes Portal you can do this in three simple steps ...

Want to know what we are up to?

In the GeoScience Lab we are constantly pushing the envelope on what we do with models and maps. This presentation gives you an idea of what we are up to at the moment:

Mapping soil functional properties using multilevel models

In this document we present examples of R functions and scripts that may be used to generate local maps of soil functional properties based on for example remote sensing data, climate surfaces and/or digital elevation models and their derivatives ...

About the Landscapes Portal

The Landscapes Portal is an online GIS platform with a number of features for visualisation, data management and spatial modelling. Some of the upcoming features in future releases include:

  • Time-series analysis
  • Toolkits for interactive modeling
  • Mapping of phenology
  • Species abundance mapping
  • Species diversity mapping (e.g. trees)
  • Vegetation analysis
  • Soil mapping (e.g. SOC, pH, etc.)

The Landscapes Portal is developed with support from
