    The GeOC tool is divided in 2 components: the web-based geographic information system (called WEB-GIS tool) and the Sustainable Land Management (called SLM tool).
    This videos focus on WEB-GIS interface. This video shows how a context socio-ecological type can be defined and which the different outputs that the GeOC offers are.

    The GeOC tool is divided in 2 components: the web-based geographic information system (called WEB-GIS tool) and the Sustainable Land Management (called SLM tool).
    This videos focus on WEB-GIS interface. It shows the function that maps the socio-ecological context similarity of a selected SLM. This will provide a spatially explicit extrapolation domain that supports the out or upscaling of the selected SLM.
