Land cover and land use are fundamental underpinning information layers for a broad range of terrestrial environmental applications from local to global scales.

They are important to conservation, impact assessment, spatial planning to climate modelling. From the beginning of remote sensing, the classification of the Earth’s surface into these types of information, either by photo interpretation or digital analysis, has been an important use of the technology.

The 2-day workshop has been designed to bring the UK land cover mapping community together and explore the very latest developments in this field. There will also be opportunities for discussion and networking between key academic, commercial and government figures.
