The WISE peatland tool

Emissions reduction and habitat restoration are both important considerations in relation to peatland management and restoration in Scotland.

The WISE decision support tool has been developed to summarise all the information that is available at national scale on peatland locations and various condition indicators. This makes it easier to consider where peatland conservation and restoration may be most desirable.

This revised version from September 2014 includes an uncertainty map (p4) of the probability that a given area is highly suitable for restoration management. The tool is still being developed and we welcome feedback.
