Landscape and biodiversity indicators have been identified as crucial for detecting changes in the Land Cover/Habitat map target classes and evaluating threats and intense impacts on certain areas of a site. This analysis is useful to prevent future ecosystem degradation, update the preservation strategies or take immediate mitigation actions.

Regarding La Palma – Canary Island, Landscape and biodiversity indicators were generated for 2007. The Land Cover/Habitat map and Object-ID raster files were used as input to estimate the indicators. The outputs include a raster file of each indicator and a file “indValues.csv” containing the values of indicators per object.

The calculated indicators are: (i) PLAND; (ii) PD; (iii) SHAPE_MN; (iv) CA; (v) MPS; (vi) MESH; (vii) AWMPFD. Indicator files are accompanied by INSPIRE metadata XML. Detailed information can be found in the “Readme.pdf” included in the zip containing the dataset.
