SPECIAL NOTICE - ESII TOOL USERS: DO NOT UPDATE YOUR iPad TO iOS 13

The current ESII Tool field application is scheduled to undergo several updates over the next month. In the meantime, it appears that updating your iPad to the latest version of Apple’s operating system (iOS 13) may cause incompatibilities with some elements of the application.

The Ecosystem Services Identification & Inventory Tool, or the ESII Tool, is an iPad app and web interface that lets people understand the benefits that nature provides and incorporate the value of nature into decision making.

Why ESII


With the information provided by the ESII Tool, you can:

  • Identify, inventory, and understand ecosystem services on your site

  • Help focus restoration efforts

  • Optimize site layouts/designs for your business

  • Run “what if?” scenarios

  • Help minimize development related impacts

  • Inform cost-benefit analyses when you are considering green infrastructure options, etc.

 

State-of-the-Art Analysis Tool

Using the ESII Field App, you can download mapping for your property, go into the field and collect spatially-explicit ecological data for your site. In the ESII Project Workspace, you can review and edit the data once you have returned from the field, run the ESII Tool’s ecological models, and generate results in a variety of user-friendly formats.
