ARIES is a web-based technology offered to users worldwide to assist rapid ecosystem service assessment and valuation (ESAV). Its purpose is to make environmental decision making easier and more effective. ARIES helps users discover, understand, and quantify environmental assets and the factors influencing their values, for specific geographic areas and based on user needs and priorities.
ARIES follows the open source software paradigm; our goal is to have unsupervised access to ARIES services open and free for all non-profit users, including members of NGOs, academic, or governmental institutions. Non-profit users commit to sharing data in ways that best reflect their mission and sources, contributing to the growth of the system over time. Access to ARIES for business and consulting groups will also be made available through consortium members, whose proceeds will support the maintenance and growth of the system.
