You can read an introduction to the Landscape Monitoring Programme HERE
The monitoring brings together existing and new data to monitor landscape change in a meaningful, practical and efficient way. It has been developed through research, data review and pilot project work, including a workshop with partners in 2014. At the heart of the programme is a number of landscape indicators grouped into four themes:
- Landscape Qualities
- Public Perception
- Land Cover
- Built Development
The monitoring programme will develop in phases; with this first phase being published in Spring 2017.
