Standardized landscape data – as presented
in the project – provide an instrument for the planning
process and success control of management measures. A methodology
transfer within the EU ensures a coordinated proceeding on an
international level concerning landscape management.
Successively, this database can be expanded to more
closely settled areas in the periphery of alpine protected areas.
Additionally, a transfer of the methods developed through HABITALP
to other high mountain landscapes outside the Alps is possible
once the EU extension to the east will be effected.
The HABITALP project significantly contributes to the coordinated
and standardized realization of the EU NATURA 2000 Habitat directive
on an international level. The innovative performance of the project
exists by the surface covering application of internationally
coordinated methods within the entire alpine landscape.
