Abstract

This report outlines the development of a new habitat map for the Falkland Islands. To develop a broad scale habitat map it was necessary to identify suitable satellite imageries and the appropriate level of aggregation of habitat classes that could be identified through the analysis of the remotely sensed imageries.

This study was undertaken as part of a programme of Natural Capital Assessment (NCA) in the UK's South Atlantic Overseas Territories implemented by JNCC and conducted by SAERI. Funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) of the UK Government through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), the work sits under the Environmental Resilience programme which includes objectives to integrate natural capital considerations into economic and social development planning.
