Work with Aberystwyth University
Presentation Outline
• Existing work
– Earth Observation
– Land Cover and Habitat Mapping?
• How COBWEB can help
• Going forward - what we can give back

Vegetation and Land Cover: Why does it matter?
• Important at every scale
– Global: Understanding global agricultural
resource, forest extent, distribution of sensitive
habitat types, understanding climate change…
– Regional: Mapping that informs policy for sensitive
habitat management, monitoring biodiversity,
understanding how vegetation changes…
– Local: Protecting sensitive species, conservation
management, our impact on the local
environment…
Global land cover products
• Include ‘GLC Share’ launched recently
Regional land cover products
• Europe-wide and national datasets

How COBWEB can help
How COBWEB can help
How COBWEB can help
• In the field we need to know:
– Our location,
– Basemapping,
– Information about what we are
looking at, and
– Photographs to support our field
notes (preferably).
• Mobile apps can be a valuable
data collection tool
Going forward - What we can give back
• Data that COBWEB can work with to meet
data quality and data management objectives
• Data that will be of interest to other academics
and stakeholders
• Field observations – descriptions/data about
vegetation and habitat type
• Geotagged photographs of vegetation and
habitat types
• …
