Using scatter plots to compare results

The most advanced analysis option in the software is the possibility to make scatter plots that summarise

multiple maps. You can make two types of scatter plots: (1) plots for different regions for one time slice

(Fig 6), or (2) plots for different time slices for one region (Fig. 7).

Under , you can select whether you want to compare ecosystem service or

exposure maps. Similar to creating fact sheets, you first need to select specifiers in the left-hand column.

You also need to select whether you want to make a plot for one time slice (and multiple regions) or for

one region (and multiple time slices). When enough specifiers have been selected the

button can be clicked in order to produce a scatter plot.

Figure 6. Scatter plot for the ecosystem service Farmer livelihood for the 2050-2080 time slice. There are large

differences between countries, both in the values of the ecosystem services, and in the impacts of the scenarios. For

instance, in most countries, the A1 – global economic scenario results in the lowest farmer livelihood, except in The

Netherlands where the A1 scenario leads to the highest farmer livelihood value.
