Integrated environmental modeling (IEM) represents a new paradigm, inspired by modern environmental problems, decisions, and policies and enabled by transdisciplinary science and computer capabilities that allow the environment to be considered in a fundamentally different way. The problems are characterized by the extent of the geo-ecological system(More)
– In striving to improve the predictive capabilities of ecological forecasting we face three basic choices: develop new models, improve existing ones or increase the connectivity of models so they can work together. The latter approach of chaining different interoperable models is of particular interest, as technical developments have made it increasingly(More)

eHabitat is a Web Processing Service (WPS) designed to compute the likelihood of finding ecosystems with equal properties. Inputs to the WPS, typically thematic geospatial " layers " , can be discovered using standardised catalogues, and the outputs tailored to specific end user needs. Because these layers can range from geophysical data captured through(More)
