Gorse Density 2013

19 Jun 2018

This dataset was first added to LRIS Portal on 19 Jun 2018.

Gorse density has been classified within 4 ha (200 x 200 m) tiles as either absent (transparent), low density (< 1 plant/ha = yellow), moderate density (<10 plants/ha = orange) or high density (>10 plants/ha = red). Tiles overlap because classification was carried out on individual photos prior to mosaicking. The highest density takes precedence when tiles overlap.
