Applied procedures: The map combines the stock estimates for pastures, mosaic agriculture, forests, dry semi-natural and natural land, wetlands and water bodies. The smoothing radius of 10 km has been used to calculate the extent (%) of these cover types within 10 km of each point (see Section 8.3.1). The resulting density of green surfaces has been mapped as a continuum from high to low.
