Final habitat maps for all Natura 2000 areas are needed in order to make proper management plans.
For Natura 2000 management it is necessary to have a good baseline situation of the occurrence of habitat types in Natura 2000 areas. Aim of the project Habitat Mapping IV is to collect all habitat maps of Natura 2000 sites to create a GIS database at the Ministry of EL & I.
The main products of this project are the final habitat maps for all Natura 2000 sites. The intention is that all final maps (or a copy) end up in a rural 'GIS library' of the Ministry of EL & I.
