To be able to analyze the data from Natura 2000, the first step is to get the data from the Natura 2000 page ([1],[2],[3],[4],[5],[6],[7]). When acquiring data from any source, it is important to keep in mind that everything you do should be transparent and traceable. This can be done by either documenting each step properly or making an easy-to-read script that handles the steps involved, or both. Why is it important to ensure transparency and traceability? The most important reasons are to be able to prove that the basis for your analysis comes from the data sources that you say they come from and to be able to spot possible errors in the analysis.
