English abstract:
Biodiversity is a complex measure inherently difficult to quantify, requiring measuring and weighing of several different indices. Natura 2000 protected area monitoring represents a widely used scheme for this. Here we present a case study where Natura 2000 habitat conservation status was monitored using airborne laser scanning, directly representing every single variable required by the terrestrial monitoring guidelines with sensor data products. Dual-season full waveform scanning was used, and processed with OPALS software and our own machine learning fuzzy classification system. Results showed 80% agreement to ground references, a level of accuracy similar to field mapping.
