Short description of the contract or purchase(s):  
Strategic discussions amongst member countries, the European Parliament and the main EU institutions responsible for environmental policy, reporting and assessment (DG ENV, EEA, ESTAT and JRC) have underlined an increasing need for factual and quantitative information on the state of the environment to be based on timely, quality-assured data, in particular in land cover and land use related issues.
EEA is collaborating with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission (EC) on the implementation of a fast track service on land monitoring, in line with the Communication from the Commission to the Council and the European Parliament 'Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES): From Concept to Reality' (COM(2005) 565 final).
For the implementation of this GMES fast track service on land monitoring (Land FTS) 2006–2008, a CLC (Corine Land Cover) update will be combined with the production of new high-resolution land cover data to provide a first set of cost-effective operational services on core land cover and land use data at European level, based on high-quality ortho-rectified multi-temporal satellite data.
These land cover data will support a wide range of environmental information requirements for framing, implementing and evaluating several policy areas at European, national and regional level including agriculture, soil, water, urban environment, air quality, physical planning, integrated coastal zone management, biodiversity and nature protection.
The overall objective is the production of a seamless European high-resolution core land cover dataset of built-up areas, including degree of soil sealing, for the reference year 2006. The ortho-rectified satellite input data for this GMES fast track service will be made available by ESA.
