The 3Q Monitoring Programme is based on a national random sample of monitoring squares that contain agricultural land (cultivated land or infield pasture). The aim is to document land use, field size, cultural heritage, biological diversity and accessibility. The program includes field work at a sub-sample of monitoring squares to record birds, plants, buildings and cultural heritage and to document the visual landscape using georeferenced photographs.
Monitoring of summer farm landscapes is based on a national random sample of monitoring squares that contain summer farms. The summer farms are typically in the forests and mountains, making use of outfield grazing. The focus of this survey is a general characterization of summer farms, with their associated buildings, cultural heritage and outfield pastures.
"Landscape data in a geographical grid" is a system for documenting georeferenced statistical data on agriculture, land use and land cover, using national standardized grids. This system is useful to illustrate geographical patterns and regional differences and to visualize changes over time.
