The Countryside Survey 1990 project centres on a sample-based field survey of land cover, habitats and species, linked with a land cover map derived from satellite imagery. Other components include freshwater biota sampling and a detailed soil survey of sample sites throughout Great Britain. It is funded by the Department of the Environment and Natural Environment Research Council, with support from the Nature Conservancy Council. Results from the 1990 survey will be compared with those from earlier surveys by ITE and others, so that both stock and change statistics can be computed for great Britain and for major planning regions. Mapped information will be digitised and handled using geographical information systems. Results will become available over the next 12 months.
