This document provides a report to accompany the three web services for environmental information extraction delivered. The web services provide tools to perform entity disambiguation, recognition of environmental terms, and extraction of environmental indicators respectively. Since the services are still in development, and this is only the first version, users are able to just make use of the web service; the final version will be made open source.
