Analyzing Ecosystem Services in Armenia Using ArcGIS Online: A Case Study of the Geghard Monastery and the Kotayk Province

Implementing explicit spatial assessments of ecosystem services in landscape planning and decision making can help enhance sustainable development. Using software tools, such as Desktop GIS, MobilGIS and WebGIS Applications, can support the process. For two research areas in Armenia well-known methods for the assessment of cultural ecosystem services and the soil erosion prevention were calculated, and story maps in ArcGIS Online were produced in a landscape architecture studio. In this paper the implementation, especially of story maps for communication and participation in distance learning projects, are described.
