We have extensive experience with mapping from large parts of the country and have a strong focus on quality. We have several framework agreements relating to the mapping of nature types with the public sector, as well as that we carry out mapping in connection with impact assessments and other smaller projects for municipalities and private individuals. DNV offers: mapping according to the Environment Agency’s instructions mapping according to Nature in Norway (NiN), e.g. base mapping nature type mapping in connection with impact assessments courses and training in the use of the NiN system for clients in connection with impact assessments and regulatory plans compilation and review of nature type data for state administrators and municipalities monitoring of endangered species and habitat types NiN stands for Nature in Norway and is a complete system for describing all-natural variation in the country. The system can be adapted to different purposes for different users. Mapping according to NiN provides very important knowledge for how we can manage nature in the future. We take on assignments throughout Norway and have good experience from all counties. DNV has carried out NiN mapping on behalf of the Norwegian Environment Agency every year since 2015. In addition to the usual nature type mapping according to the Norwegian Environment Agency’s instructions, the Wetland Center has mapped 2020 conservation areas in Viken, Agder, Rogaland, Vestland, Trøndelag, Troms and Finnmark, among others. The Wetland Center currently has 8 permanent employees who work with NiN. In addition, we collaborate with other players in the field of mapping such as Environmental Research, Vegetation Advisor Tanaquil Enzensberger, NIBIO, NINA, Asplan Viak and the Cultural Landscape Center in Telemark. We offer mapping of nature types in most areas regardless of scope, contact us if you are interested.
