Publication Can digital image classification be used as a standardised method for surveying peatland vegetation cover?
This paper, published in a Special Issue of the journal Ecological Indicators to mark 20 years of data collection at ECN terrestrial sites, describes the use of digital image classification techniques as an approach to surveying peatland vegetation to functional type level.

Publication Estimating habitat extent and carbon loss from an eroded northern blanket bog using UAV derived imagery and topography
In this study, researchers used aerial imagery collected by flying a UAV over the ECN Moor House site, an upland blanket bog. From this spatial data, a digital surface model was constructed and vegetation and peatland features were classified, enabling carbon loss to be estimated. The paper shows what can be achieved with low-cost UAVs equipped with consumer grade camera equipment, and demonstrates their potential for the carbon and peatland conservation research community.
