The map shows the difference of the years 2015 and 2009 and presents the increase in fragmentation in that period. The original 100m values were resampled to a 5 km grid for visualisation purposes.

European data


Additional information

The map presents fragmentation increase after outliers have been removed (less than 5 percentile and more than 90 percentile). Fragmentation was calculated for the years 2009, 2012 and 2015 using the effective mesh size method.

The map covers the EEA-39 member countries. Due to poor data coverage of fragmentation geometries for this period the following countries have been omitted: Cyprus, Iceland, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, Cyprus, North Macedonia, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Turkey.
