    Gögnin veita upplýsingar um hvar hægt er að losa úr ferðasalernum. Í reglugerð um hollustuhætti segir að á tjald- og hjólhýsasvæðum eða í námunda við það skuli vera aðstaða til að tæma og hreinsa ferðasalerni. Rekstraraðili svæðisins skuli veita upplýsingar um og vísa á aðstöðuna, en einnig er hægt að leita upplýsinga um staðsetningu slíkrar aðstöðu annars staðar, t.d. hjá upplýsingamiðstöðvum og á bensínstöðvum. Árið 2012 tók Umhverfisstofnun saman lista yfir þá staði á landinu þar sem finna má aðstöðu til losunar ferðasalerna. Listinn er byggður á upplýsingum frá heilbrigðiseftirliti sveitarfélaganna.

    Vatnajökulsþjóðgarður var formlega stofnaður 7. júní 2008, en lög um hann tóku gildi 1. maí 2007. Vatnajökulsþjóðgarður er langstærsti þjóðgarður Íslands, 14.703 km2. Þjóðgarðurinn var samþykktur á heimsminjaskrá UNESCO 5. júlí 2019. Skráin sýnir mörk Vatnajökulsþjóðgarðs eftir stækkun hans 10. ágúst 2019. Mörkin eru teiknuð í samræmi við reglugerð um Vatnajökulsþjóðgarð, nr. 608/2008 og þær sjö breytingar á henni sem tengjast þjóðgarðsmörkum. Nýjasta viðbótin er svæði við og í Jökulsárgljúfrum. Sá fyrirvari er á gögnunum að ef það er misræmi milli gagnanna og texta í reglugerð, þá gildir reglugerðartextinn. Vatnajökull National Park was founded on June 7th 2008, although the act on Vatnajökull National Park was entered into force on May 1st 2007. It is the largest national park in Iceland by far, 14,703 km2. Vatnajökull National Park was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 5th 2019. The boundary of Vatnajökull National Park, after its latest expansion on August 10th 2019. The boundary is drawn in accordance to regulation on Vatnajökull National Park, No 608/2008, and its seven amendments which have changed the boundary. The latest addition is a small area in and around Jökulsárgljúfur. Disclaimer: If there is a difference between the data and the regulation text, then the regulation text applies.

    Fráveituvatn er í eðli sínu notað vatn. Vatn sem við höfum nýtt til að baða okkur, elda mat, sturta niður í klósettin, þvo bíla, föt og ýmislegt annað. Notkunin veldur því að allskonar efni s.s. úrgangur frá fólki, matarleifar, olíur, sápur, hreinsiefni, málmar og jafnvel hættuleg efni blandast í annars hreint vatn. - Fráveituvatn getur verið mengunarvaldur en góð hreinsun getur dregið verulega úr neikvæðum áhrifum þess: - Úrgangur frá fólki er saurmengaður lífrænn úrgangur sem inniheldur bæði áburðarefni og mikið magn örvera og sýkla. - Í fráveituna berst ýmis úrgangur t.d. af yfirborði gatna og rusl (blautklútar, tannþráður o.fl.) sem er hent í í salerni. - Ýmis hættuleg efni s.s. úr hreinsiefnum, eldtefjandi efni og skordýraeitur geta fundist í fráveituvatni. - Mikið magn af næringarefnum (fosfór og köfnunarefni) í skólpi getur valdið ofauðgun eða aukinni framleiðslu þörunga (þörungablóma) sem getur leitt til skorts á súrefni í vatninu. Slíkt hefur neikvæð áhrif á staðbundið vatnalíf og getur valdið dauða ýmissa lífvera. - Fráveituvatn mengað af lyfjaleifum getur haft neikvæð áhrif á dýr, eins og fjölgun og hegðun þeirra. Losun sýklalyfja í skólpi eykur þróun lyfjaónæmis hjá bakteríum í umhverfinu. Best er að draga eins og hægt er úr allri efnanotkun og sturta ekki efnum í klósett og niðurföll heldur fara með þau til móttökuaðila slíks úrgangs.

    The Corine Land Cover datasets CLC2000, CLC2006and CLC change 2000-2006 are produced within the frame of the GMES land monitoringproject.Corine Land Cover (CLC) provides consistent information on land cover and land cover changes across Europe. This inventory was initiated in 1985 (reference year 1990) and established a time series of land cover information with updates in 2000 and 2006.CLC products are based on photointerpretation of satellite images by national teams of participating countries - the EEA member and cooperating countries – following a standard methodology and nomenclature with the following base parameters: 44 classes in the hierarchical three level Corine nomenclature; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for status layers is 25 hectares; minimum width of linear elements is 100 metres; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for Land Cover Changes (LCC) for the change layers is 5 hectares. The resulting national land cover inventories are further integrated into a seamless land cover map of Europe.Land cover and land use (LCLU) information is important not only for land change research, but also more broadly for the monitoring of environmental change, policy support, the creation of environmental indicators and reporting. CLC datasets provide important datasets supporting the implementation of key priority areas of the Environment Action Programmes of the European Union as protecting ecosystems, halting the loss of biological diversity, tracking the impacts of climate change, assessing developments in agriculture and implementing the EU Water Framework Directive, among others.More about the Corine Land Cover (CLC) and Copernicus land monitoring data in general can be found at http://land.copernicus.eu/.
