The collection and generation of Alpine-wide spatial information has been the focus of interest at the Institute for many years. These data are not only used to present developments in the Alpine region, but are also used in many projects as a basis for spatial and statistical analyses. Originally the focus was on the sectors environment, society, and economy, but now map bases are increasingly being generated which illustrate the current state or changes in the area of ecosystem services and the consequences of climate change.

Aim of the project “Alpenatlas 2.0” is to permanently update the existing spatial database and to expand the database with new, relevant spatial data. This database serves the support of researchers and stakeholders which are dependent on up-to-date and precise information during decision-making processes.

The project is closely connected with WikiAlps what aims at contributing to a balanced and shared territorial development in the Alpine Space, and focuses on the key research field 'Sustainability–monitoring in human-environmental systems' of the 2012-2016 Strategic Plan of the Institute for Alpine Environment and promotes the collaboration inside EURAC Mountains.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
