Earth Observation (EO) images have been extensively used to provide a synoptic view of land cover/use (LC/LU) patterns and land cover/use changes. Land covers are not as clearly relatable to biodiversity in comparison to habitat classifications which can provide more scope for biodiversity monitoring. The main purpose of the paper is to provide an automatic general framework for translating LC maps (in LCCS taxonomy) into habitat maps (in GHC taxonomy) by means of VHR remote sensing data.
