According to an all-embracing study, composed by a team of several renowned scientists and experts, Planet Earth offers 17 different ecosystem services which directly contribute to human welfare. If Earth was an economical thinking enterprise, there would be a price to pay for all these services – that's what this infographic is all about.
Demo Film showing the infographics interactive possibilities (best watched in fullscreen HD for a perfect readability)
Detail view. The larger the field, the higher the service's value.
Creation of an Ecoservice Field. The shown vegetation gives a hint of the biological condition that creates most of the services power.
Every single Ecoservice has its price tag. Summed up, all 17 Ecoservices come to an average value of 33 Trillion US-$ – more than the GNP at the time the study has been published.
System of icons, created for this project and shown on the price tags. Each Ecoservice has its own icon.
