Why do we need national-scale environmental data and models?

Because they provide essential evidence to help us understand how and why the environment is changing and improve our ability to manage environmental change.

UK-SCAPE is providing national-scale data and models that:

  • Enhance and integrate data on air, soil, biodiversity, and water.
  • Improve our understanding of the consequences of interventions in the UK landscape.
  • Help us to protect and enhance the environment while supporting economic growth.

Linking across all UK-SCAPE work packages, we have created a data platform providing open access to scientific evidence, models and observational data through a Data Science Framework.

Our approach ensures that data, information and forecasting capabilities are accessible, timely and efficient.
