Data transfer from the Natura 2000 database to the Emerald Network database 2022
The following resources provide information on the data transfer process of the UK’s Natura 2000 sites to the Emerald Network database which was completed by JNCC in 2021. An overview of the process, outlining how data were translated for both species and habitats is provided, along with Emerald Network translation summaries for sites in the UK and Gibraltar.
The transfer process was not straight-forward, particularly due to the relationship between Annex I of the Habitats Directive and Resolution 4 of the Bern Convention.
The following resources are available:
- Data Transfer to the Emerald Network Database – a PDF version of a Powerpoint presentation which outlines the process.
- Emerald Network Translation Summary for the UK – available in xlsx and ods format.
- Emerald Network Translation Summary for Gibraltar – available in xlsx and ods format.
The Emerald Network translation summary for Gibraltar is published here with permission from the Government of Gibraltar.
These resources may not be fully accessible for all users. If you need copies in a different or more accessible format, please contact Communications@jncc.gov.uk.
