VReijs I see the elevation maps: http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/digital-elevation-model-of-europe , but can someone tell me what the elevation value for each color is (aka the Z-axis). One might think the lower the color index (green) the lower the actual elevation, but below zero has a color index of 35...
So does someone have the legend for the colors?
I don't see it in the project file: http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/

Thanks for your help.

All the best,

nk Hello,
In order to do my study, it would be helpful to get the urban sprawl data from years before. I have found a link on your website:
that shows history of urban sprawl in Copenhagen, I have been unable to find the data set for this.
 I have written to European Commission: Joint Research Centre, Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Unit asking for the information, but I have received an automated response over a month ago but no actual response. Any chance you can help me get the historical data for land use in Copenhagen area.

RichardH I write from Belgium with a question about invasive species of foreign birds; in particular Canada goose (Branta canadensis) and Egyptian goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus)

In the past few years these species have invaded our green public spaces (and our farm pastures).

According to the website "Invasive species in Belgium"
http://ias.biodiversity.be/species/all both are status A3 invasive species.

But while the relevant authorities encourage action against A3 species of plants, and insects (e.g. Heracleum mantegazzianum, Harmonia axyridis), they seem reluctant to do anything about these birds, even on public land which they own, and which I would have thought they have a duty to protect. This is no doubt because they are afraid of causing an outcry from bird "lovers".

I'd be interested to hear from anyone whose local authority has been more proactive towards Canada and/or Egyptian geese. What did they do, and how did they do it?

Richard H.
