The second phase of the study, stakeholder mapping, will utilize the social value typology of ecosystem services and resource uses generated in phase one along with identified management issues representative of Sarasota Bay, FL to gather spatial value information throughout the study area. The goal of the mapping exercise will be to gather data required for application in the SolVES modeling tool. In order to reach a wide range of Sarasota Bay stakeholders, an online interactive workbook has been developed to gather necessary data. This workbook can be accessed online or via mail (by request) and will answer two pertinent questions:
- How are the social values of ecosystem services spatially situated across the land and seascape of Sarasota Bay?
- Are there similarities and/or differences in social value allocation by user subgroup as determined by resource use preferences?
