GIO land

The objective of European Copernicus programme, previously known as the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) land monitoring service is to provide land cover information to users in the field of environmental and other terrestrial applications. Initial operations of the service (GIO land) focus on four components, three of which are coordinated by EEA - the pan-European and local components, and the in-situ component.

Initial activities around the pan-European component include providing: a land cover change product between 2006 and 2012, and a land cover product for 2012; and five pan-European high-resolution layers on land cover characteristics - artificial surfaces, forest areas, agricultural areas (permanent grasslands), wetlands, and water bodies. Eionet countries have the opportunity to participate in GIO land pan-European activities.
