Landscape plays an increasingly relevant and prominent role in the protection and mangement of the Earth's terrestrial environments and ecosystems, including the diverse forested, agricultural, wilderness and build-up landscapes within the Nordic countries. However to be meaningful in the Information Age such landscape level work requires vast data resources, principally spatial and geographic, so as to undertake inventory and monitoring. Image data acquired by remote sensing have a major role to play in the information resourcing for landscape work, as is already manifest in many strategic Nordic mapping and monitoring programmes. A previous NMR publication has described several of the major Nordic landscape level programmes programmes including their use of image data. Areas of focus for increased collaboration and co-ordination in the use of image data were identified. This follow-on publication presents further examples of Nordic landscape level monitoring, reports of four recent Nordic workshops and one Global workshop addressing steps towards increased coordination, and two pieces of methodological work in the use of image data and image derived information in Nordic landscape level monitoring.
