MapNat - The ecosystem service mapping smartphone App

An advanced beta version of MapNat, the ecosystem service (ES) mapping smartphone App, is now available for test use. MapNat lets you map the ecosystem services you are actually using in the very moment of mapping. So the mapping perspective is that of ES use or ES ‘flow’. It is designed as a citizen science tool, to be used to get to know more about how people appreciate and use different ES. Just map which ES you are using. On the map display you can also assess which ES have been used by others, what they commented and how often they use/enjoy the ES they mapped or how severe they judge the disservices they encountered.

This beta version has full functionality, but maybe with a few minor bugs or typos included (photo uploads are for example currently switched off due to limited server space). In the documentation you find information on how to install MapNat on your ANDROID phone or tablet and other instruction on how to use the App.

Any technical and thematic comments are welcome. For questions, comments please contact joerg.priess(at) .
