Threatened coastal habitat types in Georgia (GIS)

Availability: Restricted
The data are withheld from general circulation and disclosure but access may be obtained on a case-by-case basis through negotiation

Description
Pilot study on red data habitats in Georgia. more

This project achieved a number of positive conclusions, including:
  • demonstrating the feasibility of using the EUNIS habitat classification system as a standard for delimiting different habitat types in the coastal zone and its immediate hinterland;
  • the application of remote sensing and GIS techniques for locating, mapping and assessing the habitat types identified;
  • assembling species information and creating a data base capable of displaying distribution maps using a 10 km grid and over six decenniel periods in order to assess trends;
  • devising a quantitative set of criteria for habitat risk assessment independent of the habitat types themselves so that baseline conditions can be determined and changes in status more easily monitored.
