INtegrated Valuation of Ecosystem Services Tool (INVEST) - Project Products
The INtegrated Valuation of Ecosystem Services Tool (INVEST) is a web-based tool that shows the relative value estimates for the West Michigan policy region's green infrastructure and the associated ecosystem services. The web-tool can be found at the URL: http://www.gvsu.edu/wri/invest/
The project web-tool was demonstrated at the West Michigan Strategic Alliance's Natural Connections Summit in Hudsonville, Michigan, on October 18, 2007. See a version of the presentation: The Value of Green: Economic Valuation of Ecosystem Services in West Michigan.
