A selection of N2K grassland-rich sites (5 grassland habitats types 6210, 6240, 6250, 6510 and 6520, including a 2km buffer and covering approx. 160.000 km2) sites was mapped in order to assess their actual area, their condition and their development over time. The sites were analysed for the 2006 and 2012 reference years and a change analysis was performed. The mapping also included a 2km buffer zone where an analysis of pressures and threats was conducted. The analysis focused on a selection of grassland (semi-natural/species rich) habitat types.
The inclusion of the remaining grassland-rich N2K sites not selected in the current exercise will be implemented in 2016 and an extension to other habitat types is also foreseen and under discussion.

OSM XML – xml-format provided by the API
PBF Format – highly compressed, optimized binary format similar to the API
o5m – for high-speed processing, uses PBF coding, has same structure as XML format
OSM JSON – json variant of OSM XML
Level0L – more human readable OSM XML without <> and lowered redundancy
Current conditions (interpolations of observed data, representative of 1960-1990)
Future conditions: downscaled global climate model (GCM) data from CMIP5 (IPPC Fifth Assessment)
Past conditions (downscaled global climate model output)
