Spatial distribution of cultural ecosystem services (2018) in the Falkland Islands

A written questionnaire with 22 questions was prepared by experts at the University of Kent and used to retrieve from the people living in the Falklands the cultural aspect their attributed to places. The dataset is a spatial layer where each point represents places that the respondents to the questionnaire have marked as important to them in tems of essence (iconicity), work and leisure activities.

Lineage Raw data were manipulated in R. Each point represents one response to a question in the cultural ecosystem services (CES) survey. The questions can be summarised into three: Which places do you feel best capture the ‘ESSENCE’ of the NATURAL ENVIRONMENT of the Falkland Islands? As you go about your WORK, are there any places in the natural environment that you have come to feel are particularly special, significant or important to you? As you spend LEISURE time outdoors, are there any places in the natural environment that you feel are particularly special, significant or important to you in some way? The responses from people were aggregated per locations. In the attribute table of the spatial layer, the column "freq" marks how many respondents have indicated a particular place as important. While the column "category" indicates the type of place (essence, work, leisure). A report and the layout of the 22 questions are also provided with the dataset.
