Abstract

Earth observation (EO) is identified within all the conservation bodies and Defra as an important development area for monitoring habitats of high conservation value. This report describes the outcomes of Phase 2 of the three-part research project – 'Making Earth Observation Work (MEOW)' – designed to consider the practical role Earth Observation can play in addressing habitat monitoring and surveillance needs in the UK.

The objectives of Phase 2 focussed on:

  • developing and testing Earth Observation techniques for mapping Annex I and priority habitats;
  • developing Earth Observation measures that inform on habitat condition.

Details of phase 1 of the project are provided in JNCC Report No. 495, Phase 1.
