Description:

The Eco-Health Relationship Browser (Browser) is a web tool designed to portray, in an engaging and intuitive way, the linkages between ecosystems, their services, and potential health outcomes that have been associated with those services in the literature. It functions an interactive front end to identify and summarize published findings from an extensive, systematic literature review of ~200 peer-reviewed publications across multiple scientific disciplines. The Browser was beta-tested with 24 general and expert users; based on this feedback, the format and content were revised and expanded. The Browser will be accessible under the "Tools" button in ORD's web-based National Atlas for Sustainability (which is not yet public-facing).

Purpose/Objective:

The Eco-Health Relationship Browser is a web tool designed to portray, in an engaging and intuitive way, the linkages between ecosystems, their services, and potential health outcomes that have been associated with those services in the literature.
