Satellite technology to monitor habitats and biodiversity
On July 3, 2013, the EO4Hab workshop was held in Salzburg, where representatives from science, policy, administration, and industry met in an inspiring setting. The workshop on “Ecosystem and Biodiversity Monitoring (EO4Hab) - Best practice in Europe and globally” was organized by the Department of Geoinformatics - Z_GIS, in the frame of the GI Forum 2013. More than 25 presentations and posters showcased the potential of Earth observation satellite technology in becoming a key asset for a more effective, area-wide ecosystem and biodiversity monitoring for Europe and globally. Two EU-funded FP-7 SPACE projects MS.MONINA and BIO_SOS presented their outcomes highlighting recent achievements and open challenges related to satellite-based services.

The conference proceedings are also available for download.
