This technical report addressed three main goals. A comparative assessment of pressures defined on the basis of remotely sensed grassland mapping and those recorded within the Natura 2000 database; The collection of identified links between mapped and native N2000 pressure information to build a database connecting changes of land cover classes to pressures recorded within the N2000 database and suggestions for upcoming change analysis methodology.
