Methodological framework for exploratory analysis of CES through Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR). Given the high diversity of habitats and ecosystems in the study site of Quatre Montagnes, we assume that CES delivery is context-specific and we expect a significant geographical variation in the relations between the photo-count and explanatory variables. The variables correspond to the physical (environmental settings) and infrastructure (opportunity settings) characteristics of the landscape whose spatial variation may affect the CES provision. The spatially weighted regression showed that specific variables correspond to prominent drivers of CES at the local scale. Dominant habitat, accessibility, diversity of habitat and proximity to view points were identified as the variables having a major impact on CES.
