The HNV farmland map aims to gain a better insight into the distribution and extent of farmland that is of inherent biodiversity value, and to develop a more effective tool for carrying out further analyses on spatial and time trends.
A first version (2008) of the European HNV map was based on CORINE land cover 2000 and is available by contacting Maria-Luisa Paracchini directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
The enhanced update of HNV farmland in Europe was carried out in 2012 in the same way as the HNV farmland assessment according to the JRC/EEA methodology described in Paracchini, M. L.; Petersen, J.-E.; Hoogeveen, Y.; Bamps, C.; Burfield, I. and van Swaay, C., 2008. High Nature Value Farmland in Europe. An estimate of the distribution patterns on the basis of land cover and biodiversity data. JRC Scientific and Technical Reports. European Communities, Luxembourg.
The main focus of the 2012 exercise was to update the HNV farmland dataset based on the CLC data 2006 and to include countries previously not part of the European HNV farmland assessment.
