Habitat - EBONE Project

Pattern analysis of in-situ sample based habitat maps in Europe and web data viewer  

We participatedin the FP7 project EBONE to address landscape pattern and connectivity of General Habitat Categories (based on life forms) from 1km2 in situ samples maps available at fine scale (400 m2) over several environmental zones in Europe. We have developed and applied indices and also set up a prototype map viewer which enables to view and query habitat maps and query indices.
