The MEDIS dataset is an extensive geospatial database encompassing all Mediterranean islands larger than 0.01 km2, aiming to facilitate ecological, economic, environmental, and social research. This compilation, containing 2212 islands, provides detailed data on 38 variables including geographic, climatic, ecological, and land-use aspects.
This service aims at producing the zonal statistics. The Python and C++ codes provides a generic tool to extract the statistics from a geographic layer with quantitative values for each patch of a categorical map. For example, it is used in this workflow to compute the average vulnerability inside different administrative polygons. It represents the Step 7 (final step) of the Biotope vulnerability Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.
