A Microsoft Access database that describes dozens of tools that can be used to assess, map and / or value ecosystem services within an area of interest. For each tool, the database provides information such as which ecosystem services it includes, whether or not the tool is spatial, types of data needs, and links to find out more information. 

Instructions for the use of the database are also available.
