Representatives of the BIOGEA project team participated in the 10th IALE World Congress, which took place from 1st to 5th of July, 2019 in Milan, Italy. The IALE World Congress is an international congress addressing Landscape Ecology. IALE 2019 featured the theme of Nature and Society facing the Anthropocene.
Mrs. Judit Rubio Delgado from the University of Extremadura, a BIOGEA project partner, presented the findings of a study titled: "Developing a Semi-Automatic Classification tool to map habitats and GBI at European scale using OBIA method". Within the framework of the BIOGEA project, a need to model the impact of the GBI on biodiversity is outlined. Therefore, the study proposes to develop a Semi-Automatic Classification tool that allows mapping different habitats at the European scale for which biodiversity database are available. Further information on the study can be found on the Congress' website http://www.iale2019.unimib.it/
