VHR

The GlobWetland II project will analyze on a more detailed scale (1:5,000 scale) 5 wetland sites. This requires the production of land-use and land-cover maps with more complex and detailed wetland typologies. This shall be done using very high spatial resolution (VHR) optical images. These maps shall be used principally to analyze the status, drivers and pressures of important wetland areas that are amongst the pilot sites studied by the Observatory of Mediterranean Wetlands. A second usage of the VHR optical images, and derived maps, is to be used as validation data sets for the wetland related geo-information maps and indicators, should ground truth data be lacking in some of the chosen test sites (to be primarily chosen amongst the 5 pilot sites to be studied at the 1:5,000 scale).
