Environment Systems extends Habitat Mapping of Anguilla to the Marine Environment

In 2012 Environment Systems created a new a habitat map of Anguilla. There was already some habitat mapping of the islands but it lacked detail and there was no baseline information of wetland (mangrove), limestone scrubland or particular species important to the islands’ biodiversity. The new map was created from Earth Observation data, including satellite, aerial photography and field survey data.

The project also included a knowledge transfer and training element with key members of staff from the Anguillian Department of the Environment (DOE) and Department of Physical Planning (DPP) visiting Aberystwyth to gain a better understanding of the use of Earth Observation techniques and software.
