Across much of the temperate zone, bogs, mires, and fens are relatively limited in their extent because of anthropogenic conversion of the habitat itself and/or the surrounding landscape. This is particularly the case in northern Europe where agricultural intensification and urban expansion have reduced the area of wetlands, with many existing as isolated fragments. As a consequence, many remote sensing techniques have focused on using imagery from very high resolution (VHR) sensors.
