Abstract

The quality of decision making mostly correlates with the quality of source data and data models. Aims of the decision making influence the decisions. In its turn, the sustainable land management is to ensure the growing of the humanity in a confined space without negative consequences to the environment and future generation. Uniting the existing environmental data models with Ecosystem Services assessment practices makes it possible to build Information System that supports decision making for territory planning specialists. The architecture of this Information System partially will be based on the Web Services technologies, which ensure the accessibility of input data from many sources/stakeholders and provides the availability of the output data in any stage of distributed decision making process’s step. The purpose of the research is to highlight processes which make it possible to link the data from environmental data models with Ecosystem Services indicators. The task is to formulate proposal for facilitating data exchange process in distributed strategic decision making information systems for land management. This allows making Ecosystem Services’ (Human benefits) assessment as an input using existing standardized (ISO/INSPIRE) and machine-readable (XML) data. Moreover, these assessments ensure feedback for strategic/sustainable land management which is based on distributed decision making.
