Layers available

A layer is included for each available biophysical variable and period, in grayscale and in color. It also includes a layer for each biophysical variable, in grayscale and in color, to be used with the TIME parameter. They are all visible at all scales.

Lista de variables
  • biomassa_aeria_total: total aerial biomass
  • carboni_aeri_total: total airborne carbon
  • volum_escorca: volume with bark
  • area_basal: basal area
  • biomassa_foliar: foliar biomass
  • recobriment_arbori: arboreal cover
  • diametre_normal_mitja: mean normal diameter
  • alcada_mitjana: average height
  • index_area_foliar: leaf area index
  • densitat_peus_hectarea: density of feet per hectare


[període] the values 2005 or 2016_2017 can be taken, with the exception of the foliar area index and the density of feet per hectare that are only available in the latter period.

Using the WMS GetFeatureInfo request you can obtain the value of the corresponding variable at the selected point.
