Transitioning towards circular economy requires changes in the current system which yield a number of impacts on such fundamental values as human health, natural environment, exhaustible resources, social well-being and prosperity. Moreover, this process involves multiple actors and requires careful considerations of ample spatial information. While plenty of systems have already been developed to support the decision-making process, up to date no standardized framework exists for spatial modelling of impacts. The poster is based on the ongoing research and aims to suggest a standardized, yet flexible approach for impact modelling using the core concepts of GIS. The framework is expected to ensure consistency and comparability between outputs of automated simulations and elicitation of impacts defined by stakeholders and prepare impact modelling guidelines that aim to overcome the characteristics of a single project and be reused in other GDSEs.
