CoMOLA flowchart

CoMOLA is a free Python tool to optimize the allocation of land use for multiple objectives. It builds upon the open source "inspyred" Python library and includes functions for reading, encoding and writing land use maps as well as genome generation and repair mutation algorithms for considering constraints during the optimization procedure.


glUV

glUV is a set of climate surfaces containing information on various aspects of the global distribution of ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B). The data represents a potentially useful addition to existing climate datasets (e.g. CliMond , WorldClim ) and may help refine macroecological analyses and bioclimatic modelling.


GLUES GDI

The GLUES GDI is a common data and service platform for the Sustainable Land Management funding measure and related scientific projects. It provides a network of Web services enabling standardized access to distributed geodata bases analysis functions. It can be used as a communication and dissemination platform for scientific outcomes or as decision support system for stakeholders.
