Exploitation of Remote Sensing Data for Land Cover to Habitat Map Translation: A Case Study

Focusing on the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) Land Cover Classification System (LCCS) and the recently proposed General Habitat Categories (GHCs) classifycation system, this paper illustrates how expert knowledge concerning class spatial arrangement in the scene at hand class, class phenology and class spectral signature in multi-temporal EO images can fill the gaps between the two classification systems and provide LC/LU to habitat translation. An application to a Natura 2000 site in Southern Italy which includes a wetland costal area is discussed.
