Description

This document provides a standardised classification scheme (conventions and protocols) to estimate the vegetation cover of large areas with high resolution and accuracy, which has potential use to inform and propose climate change adaptation/mitigation strategies.

The typology facilitates the reporting of the current state of environment, as well as inter-site & inter-typology comparison.

Other indicators can be estimated and assigned to each typology (i.e. biomass, carbon sequestrations, evapotranspiration, surface temperature, etc.).
