The participants will receive an overview of the background, land use types, plot distribution, and research structure of the forest and grassland sites. Besides, they are introduced to the computation and application of the land use index (LUI) and receive important information needed for the interpretation of the provided land use data. The introduction to BExIS covers relevant tools for fieldwork planning, such as Maps or the BExIS fieldbook, and provides an overview of datasets, publications, and Data policy.
