Footnotes

-Protected areas can be located in more than one municipality, and cover both land and sea areas.
-From 2004 GIS and digital overlay analysis is used to calculate the statistics. A higher accuracy is obtained.
-From 2013 : SSB changes to using the ETRS_1989_LAEA projection, for more precise area calculation
-'Other protections' include flora and fauna protection areas (biotop protections), and since 2006 nature relics with an area protection and biotops protected by the Wildlife Act are also included.
-The numbers do not include flora- or fauna protections without area protection.
-Areas on Svalbard are protected by law in the Svalbard Environmental Act. From 2009 are these areas included in the total numbers for protected areas.
-Some protected areas belong to several protection categories. 'All protection purposes'(new from 2018) states total protected area and is therefore smaller than the summation of the five protected area categories.
-Figures per 31st of December.

region
21 Svalbard
Svalbard is not defined as a county in the legal sense, but in official statistics Svalbard is treated in the same way as the other counties in Norway.
protection purpose
All protection purposes
Each protected area is counted only once. But the sum of the different protection purposes can be higher, since each area can have several protection purposes.
