This task is dealing with the assessment of the potential of the CLMS products and the enhanced LCLU database, available in the form of web application for supporting agricultural policy in Poland (under the CAP) and national agricultural policy in Norway.
Coordinated by the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO).
Task 4.1: HRL Water and wetness (HRL-WAW)
Task 4.2: HRL Small Woody Features (HRL-SWF)
Task 4.3: HRL Imperviousness (HRL-IMD)
In Task 4.1 we compered the Copernicus HRL-WAW layer to data from field inventories and aerial image interpretation in order to determine the fitness for monitoring status and change. The methods included photogrammetry, remote sensing, spatial analysis and statistics as well as document analysis needed to understand the specific monitoring requirements.
The first deliverable: Report containing information on the potential, accuracy (thematic and geometric) of Copernicus HRL-WAW for assessment of agricultural landscapes and Ecological Focus Areas has been finalised.
Overview of the HRL-WAW data for Poland (left) and Norway (right).
We are starting the analysis of the usefulness of Copernicus Small Woody Features product for assessment of woody elements in the agricultural landscape. The clusters and lines of trees and bushes observed in HRL-SWF will be compared to data from field inventories and aerial image interpretation in order to determine the fitness for use.
