Biotope survey of the Littoral Sediment of the North Norfolk Coast candidate SAC (ENRR285)

In 1998 a survey of the north Norfolk coast between Thornham TF727444 and Cley TG040455 was carried out in order to provide information to facilitate the management for this section of the Wash and North Norfolk Coast candidate Special Area of Conservation (cSAC). Maps produced would provide a spatial context against which previous and future detailed sampling could be overlaid. The survey was carried out at the Phase 1 level, is based on data outputs from a Geographical Information System (GIS) and includes biotope complex maps, biotope map and life form maps. These maps cover 64,750.267 kilometres squared of littoral biotopes. Information on biotopes is presented by geo-referenced target notes. The report discusses the main attributes shown by the different maps. Also discussed are the accuracy and limitations of the maps, features and observations of interest and comparisons with previous work.
