Ecopotential: the legacy

ECOPOTENTIAL ( is a large European-funded H2020 project that focuses its activities on a targeted set of internationally recognised Protected Areas, blending Earth Observations from remote sensing and field measurements, data analysis and modelling of current and future ecosystem conditions and services. ECOPOTENTIAL considers cross-scale geosphere-biosphere interactions at regional to continental scales, addressing long-term and large-scale environmental and ecological challenges.

Curation policy:

The community is meant to collect all final products of Ecopotential project. Input used to produce final products should not be included if archived elsewhere. In such a case, only the references  (DOi, URL, accession number and reference to the DB) to the input should be included.  

Each final product should come with the XML inspire metadata. Further data curator should add all minimal zenodo metadata information plus the link to the Ecopotential project in the field of the funder and add a minimal set of keywords:

  1. Protected Area (PA) of interest
  2. PA type of ecosystem  (i.e. mountains, coastal/marine, arid/semiarid)
  3. the level 1 folder name within the project repository that clarify the type of variables described in the products (i.e. EO_Biophysical,  EO_Classifications, EO_Data,Habitat_map, In situ data, Knowledge, LandCover, Shapefiles

Submitter are encouraged to add as further keywords as they think fit.
