 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The land surface is a decisive factor regarding the state of the environment and human well-being. To manage it well, regularly obtained up do date information on land use and land cover is needed. Land monitoring provides this information through thematic maps based on the interpretation of areal photography, satellite imagery and further sources. These maps aid spatial planning, nature protection, agricultural policy, forestry, water catchment area management, etc. In spite of its importance, land monitoring in Europe is quite inefficient owing to lacking coordination between the national, sub-national, and European levels. Efforts are duplicated and given opportunities for mutual support are not utilised which means a substantial waste of resources. HELM is a network of authorities concerned with land monitoring across Europe. It will initiate a move to increase the maturity of European land monitoring along five sequential steps: (1) mutual interest in achieving reciprocal knowledge, (2) shared visions and planning for the future, (3) joint activities by taking on tasks collectively, (4) alignment of national systems involving the mutual adaptation of data interpretation methods and of the timing of data gathering, (5) lasting integration and combining data across all administrative levels. HELM envisions a coherent European land monitoring system characterised by high quality data and efficient productivity. This system will combine the broad range of specific expertise and resources of relevant authorities in the member states. Their work will be supported through targeted centrally supplied measures fulfilling common requirements for raw data and data processing. Through a continuous flow of knowledge from the local to the European scale and the other way round, future information needs regarding land use and land cover will be met as an essential basis for managing the land surface in the framework of European sustainable development.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Monitoring of land use and land cover (LULC) is fundamental to policymaking and environmental management. An EU initiative set out to optimise European land monitoring and ensure Europe-wide sustainable development by harmonising national policies and data.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Livelihoods and quality of life are all affected by land-use policies. Despite its importance, European land monitoring is lacking coordination among local, national, regional and EU authorities and stakeholders. The EU-funded 'Harmonised European land monitoring' (http://www.fp7helm.eu/ (HELM)) project aimed to address this deficiency.

Work started with stimulating interest and communication among stakeholders and developing a joint vision for the future. Countries then took on individual tasks collectively, retaining independence but enhancing harmonisation. The countries then aggregated land monitoring data and aligned procedures and protocols ahead of Europe-wide data integration. The final step was establishing transnational collaboration across all political levels such that aggregation of LULC data becomes routine.

Project members delivered several summary documents based on project experience, all freely available on the project website. The first, which serves as a basis for all subsequent documents, provides a history of European land monitoring and a detailed inventory of key activities throughout Europe.

Other documents present best practices, a common strategy on land monitoring harmonisation and its societal implications, and overviews of existing cross-border cooperation and decentralised approaches. Another report helps project participants conduct joint land monitoring activities by outlining commonalities and differences concerning needs and requirements. Technical prerequisites and data compatibility are also considered to ensure permanent integration of national land monitoring activities across Europe.

Lastly, a roadmap for a future integrated European land monitoring system was produced.

HELM laid the groundwork for a coherent and productive European land monitoring system with high-quality land use and land cover data. Harmonised land monitoring will pave the way for better spatial planning.
