KREMS, Austria - Oct. 24, 2023 - PRLog -- With ecolo-zip, a worldwide unique database with detailed information on terrain forms, plant cover and climatic conditions at 1.5 million locations in 94 countries and regions has now been created and published. Thus, for the first time, science & research – as well as social and political institutions – have at their disposal a data source that describes the biogeophysical environment of mankind in unrivaled spatial resolution. This information is an invaluable resource for understanding the influence of spatial environments on humans and their behavior, psyche, and even political decisions. Two sets of global satellite data were used by the Department of Psychology and Psychodynamics at Karl Landsteiner University of Health Sciences (KL Krems) to create the database.

Dr. Willinger comments: "Wherever we humans go, we inevitably interact with our environment. All our personal, social and cultural behavior takes place against this background. Data like ecolo-zip now makes available are therefore of central importance to better understand these interactions. We and KL Krems therefore invite scientists from all disciplines to use ecolo-zip free of charge and without restriction."
The research team has made the database available immediately at https://doi.org./10.17605/osf.io/wcjad .
