3.1.1 Types of data

Environmental monitoring typically involves “hard” science, although there are also an increasing number of examples of non-expert (community, youth) involvement. Quantitative indicators and data, usually based on statistics or remote sensing and presented numerically in tables, graphs and maps, serve as the main foundation of environmental assessment and subsequent decision making by policy-makers, civil society and the public at large. Quantitative data is often complemented by qualitative data to capture attributes that cannot be easily measured.
