For a chosen area, the marine LEFT tool assembles relevant environmnetal data from global databases. Within minutes it provides a report with maps of different aspects of the environment
The LEFT tool uses algorithms formulated by researchers at the University of Oxford to assess the pattern of ecological features across a chosen area.
Any landscape in the world can be assessed - up to approximately 100,000km2 at a time. Output maps include information on: risk assessment; biodiversity; vulnerability; intactness; connectivity and resilience.
Marine LEFT assembles data, performs an analysis and generates a report.
The algorithms for Marine LEFT have been developed by our team at the University of Oxford, UK.
