The collection and generation of Alpine-wide spatial information have been the focus of interest at the Institute for many years. These data are used to analyze developments in the Alpine region and build the basis for many projects. Initially, the focus was on the three sustainability pillars (environment, society, and economy). Still, map bases are increasingly being generated, illustrating the current state or changes in ecosystem services, the consequences of land-use and climate change, and the 17 UN sustainable development goals (SDGs) with a special focus on the goals 11 - 15.
