CuRVe is a series of interconnected web-based maps that together form an atlas. It is a tool that can help users to explore how ecosystem resilience varies across Wales and understand the underlying reasons for this variation. It can be used to support and improve decision making about the use of, and investment in, the sustainable management of natural resources. CuRVe stands for Current Relative Value of ecosystem resilience. The Atlas is the first step in an experimental project to reveal relative values and spatial patterns of ecosystem resilience at a landscape scale for Wales. The tool brings together different types of spatial data about our ecosystems to provide insights into ecosystem resilience. Users can view information about overall ecosystem resilience of a given area and information about ecosystem attributes like diversity, extent, connectivity and condition that underpin this resilience. The tool allows users to choose the relevant spatial scale which interests them ranging from 1 km grid scale up to countrywide.
