Intern review: Tara Behnsen - Germany

"During this internship, I did land use analysis of different sites in Crete, Greece, using Google Earth Pro. My role was to identify and outline patches of various land uses such as olives, arable land, settlements, semi-natural habitat, water bodies, and other crops. Each site has a radius of 300m and 500m, and I had to identify all the patches within these areas. I am learning how this information can be applied, as the information will be used to assess how different biodiversity indices vary with land use. This requires attention to detail, which is a very useful skill to have for any career path I choose. My goal with this internship is to learn about the real world applications of landscape analysis and GIS, which is what my current internship role is helping me achieve. This will give me a better understanding of how landscape analysis can be used to achieve sustainability in food production, which is what I might want to work in in the future."
