Administrative land accounting units are used to allocate land cover changes and to relate socio-economic processes to land cover dynamics. The GISCO database (Eurostat) provides a medium-scale layer for regional administrative boundaries (NUTS) covering the entire EU territory. The hierarchy of administrative land accounting units allows the analysis of the data at various scales, from NUTS 3 (province level) to NUTS 0 (country level). A mixed level, combining NUTS 3 and NUTS 2 was defined in order to homogenize the size of the units.
