The dataset contains the coastline of Catalonia characterized for reporting the reliability of the grasslands in the 'Herbassars or prairies of marine phanerogams' dataset. If there is not known information in a section the line is not displayed. The degrees of reliability in which the line is classified are: Very high; High; Medium; Low.
The dataset contains the polygons of surrounding areas of grasslands or prairies of marine phanerogams. Bounding areas are zones in the sea near the shoreline where there is known to be grassland.
The dataset contains the polygons of known grasslands along the coast of Catalonia. The polygons have associated an attribute that indicates the type of community based on the species of phanerogams present: Posidonia oceanica; Cymodocea nodosa; Zostera noltii; Cymodocea nodosa i Caulerpa prolifera; Cymodocea nodosa, Zonstera noltii i Ruppia cirrhosa.
Delimitation and attributes that characterize each element of the Inventory of Spaces of Geological Interest of Catalonia. Spaces of geological interest are places of interest, due to their unique and/or representative character, for the study and interpretation of the origin and evolution of large geological domains, including the processes that have shaped them, the climates of the past and their paleobiological evolution in a sufficiently continuous and homogeneous manner throughout its extension, one or more notable and significant characteristics of the geological heritage of a natural region, with geometric or geographical continuity of the characteristic and with the homogeneity of this in all its extension. This set of information was born in 1999 from a collaboration agreement between, at that time, the Department of the Environment of the Generalitat of Catalonia and the Autonomous University of Barcelona.
Second version of the cartography of the habitats of community interest in the Catalan territory based on the extraction of the habitats of community interest present in the Cartography of the Habitats in Catalonia 1: 50.000. From this cartography, the correspondence with the list of Habitats of Community Interest defined by Directive 92/43/CEE of 21 May on the conservation of natural habitats and of fauna and flora has been defined and then the polygons of community interest have been extracted. The geometry is of polygons, each of which can contain up to 10 habitats of community interest. The elements of the legend can correspond to a single habitat or to a set of habitats of community interest. The presence of each habitat in the polygon is expressed by the coverage, as much as 10. Exceptionally in the case that the presence of the habitat has been detected but it is not possible to establish its surface is indicated in the field of the coverage a value of 0.5.
