  • This dataset contains land cover classification of the Akrotiri Peninsular of Cyprus, using WorldView Imagery at 2m resolution. Images from March 2018 and July 2018 were used. All the imagery was atmospherically corrected. The thematic detail of the map was generalised to the following main vegetation/cover types: bare, lake, temporary water, salt marsh, rush salt meadow, garrigue, sparse vegetation, grass, mixed woodland, Eucalyptus and Acacia. The cover classes salt marsh and rush salt meadow represent mosaics of vegetation communities. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, ground data collection was severely restricted, resulting in limited training and validation data. This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability.

  • This dataset comprises forest stand and species occurrence data for a selection of non-native species collected in the UK Sovereign Base Areas (SBA) of Cyprus in October 2015 and March 2017, with a particular focus on the area surrounding Lake Akrotiri in the Western SBA. The main focus for mapping was stands of Acacia saligna, Casuarina cunninghamiana, the eucalypts Eucalyptus camaldulensis and E. gomphocephala, and the forb Symphyotrichum squamatum. The typical accuracy of data capture was around 10-15 m precision, varying according to the presence of forest canopy. Full details about this dataset can be found at
