DOPA at FOSS4G 2018 - Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania)

The DOPA team will run a workshops at FOSS4G 2018 in Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania) the 28th of Agust showing hands-on examples based on our experiences in developing the Digital Observatory of Protected Areas (DOPA) and the BIOPAMA (Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management) project. Using case studies in Africa, we will cover data entry using OpenStreetMap tools, data management and processing in PostGIS, delivering information via REST services and through GeoServer, and putting this together in a simple web application using LeafletJS.

Changes in the protected area coverage of the world's terrestrial, marine ecoregions and pelagic provinces between April 2016 and April 2018

The map shows the percentage of coverage of the terrestrial, marine ecoregions and pelagic provinces of the world, excluding lakes, rock and ice, by protected areas. The statistics were computed using the World Database of Protected Areas (WDPA) from April 2018 and April 2016 and ecoregion maps defined by Olsen et al. (2001).

Changes in the protected area coverage of the world's pelagic provinces between April 2016 and April 2018

The map shows the percentage of coverage of the pelagic provinces of the world by protected areas. The statistics were computed using the World Database of Protected Areas (WDPA) from April 2018 and April 2016 and ecoregion maps defined by Olsen et al. (2001). The analysis used all designated protected areas recorded in the WDPA as polygons, or points with a reported area, except for UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserves because many of their buffer areas do not meet the protected area definition of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Map of protection levels for the terrestrial and marine ecoregions of the world as of April 2018

The map shows the percentage of coverage of the terrestrial, marine ecoregions and pelagic provinces of the world, excluding lakes, rock and ice, by protected areas. The statistics were computed using the World Database of Protected Areas (WDPA) from April 2018 and ecoregion maps defined by Olsen et al. (2001).

Map of protection levels for the marine ecoregions of the world as of April 2018

The map shows the percentage of coverage of the marine ecoregions of the world by protected areas. The statistics were computed using the World Database of Protected Areas (WDPA) from April 2018 and ecoregion maps defined by Spalding et al. (2007). The marine ecoregions were clipped to the coastline of the terrestrial ecoregions of the world (Olson et al. 2001) and an outer boundary corresponding to the 200-meter isobath (Spalding et al. 2007).

European Natura 2000 Day

European Natura 2000 Day relates to the 21st May 1992, when both EU Habitats Directive and LIFE programme were approved. This Directive together with the Birds Directive (approved earlier in 1979) became a base of EU Natura 2000 Network of protected areas. Today Natura 2000 consists of more than 27 000 sites across EU land and seas successfully contributing to the preservation of our unique European natural heritage.
