Develop mapping strategies to ensure further data collection and continued improvement in quality and coverage of habitat maps, plus their use in spatial environmental management

Leading to…

International habitat maps maintained via updated national mapping programmes

mesh guidance for habitat mapping

What is habitat mapping?

What do I want to map?

How do I collect the data?

How do I make a map?

How good is my map?

How can I use my map?
