Abstract

There is a demand for indicators to measure progress towards policy aims. Further, there is an increasing interest in documenting changes in the surrounding landscapes, and comparing trends of change in space and time, through landscape monitoring. Based on the theoretical framework of landscape ecology, this has initiated the development of spatial metrics. Remote sensing information, GIS, and spatial metrics are used to provide a range of measures of landscape content and composition assumed to be of importance to various processes.
