Three EARSC members team to deliver monitoring of Natura 2000 sites using Copernicus products for EC DG Environment
The Cop4N2K project is led by space4environment with Gisat, Specto Natura and also includes Bilbomatica and the Environment Agency of Austria. The team were awarded a service contract from EC DG Environment to use Copernicus data for monitoring Natura 2000 sites through the creation of a public on-line information system. A further example of a downstream service being built on the free and open data policy of Copernicus. The system will allow a systematic monitoring of pressures that negatively affect the status of species and habitat, in particular for grassland dominated sites. The resulting service will support EU Member States to take appropriate steps to proactively manage this important network of protected sites and prevent the deterioration of natural species and habitats. To achieve these aims, current and historical satellite images will be processed and combined with existing Copernicus Land Monitoring Service products to map the status and changes of land cover and land use (LC / LU) in and around each selected Natura 2000 site. In addition to the core spatial products, several grassland indicators will be developed, and a prospective study will define further indicators of grassland intensification and abandonment. A geospatial database will be developed for storing all products and indicators and provide access to all information via an interactive public website.
