    This spatial study contributes to a modelling project that, in combination with biodiversity analyses and an economic model, evaluates potentials to preserve existing habitats, to restore formerly native habitats, as well as to create non-native managed habitats with respect to freshwater wetlands of the EU. This paper deals with the methodological development of the wetland distribution model and illustration of its results. Through a GIS-based model the extent of existing wetland distribution is visualised. Additionally, potential convertible sites are modelled for (re-) creation of wetland biotopes.
