Landscape pattern is of primary interest to landscape ecologists and landscape metrics are used to quantify landscape pattern. Calculation of landscape metrics is commonly conducted on completely mapped areas
based on remotely sensed data. FRAGSTATS is a frequently used software for this purpose. Sample based approach is an interesting alternative to extract landscape data compared to complete mapping. The argument is that a sample survey takes less time; that it is possible to achieve more accurate result in a well-designed and wellexecuted
sample survey; and that data can be acquired and analyzed more efficiently.Since aerial photos are important source of data for many ongoing environmental monitoring programs such as NILS, there is an urgent need to investigate
the possibilities and limitations of both mapping and sample based approaches for estimating landscape metrics.
