Additional information

The objectives of the land cover project are: - to provide those responsible for and interested in the European policy on the environment with quantitative data on land cover, consistent and comparable across Europe; - to prepare one comprehensive land cover database for the 25 EC Member States and other European countries, at an original scale of 1: 250 000, using 44 classes of the 3-level Corine nomenclature. Changed since last version of the dataset: - New countries added - Geometry improved. Geometry of databases have been improved using ArcGIS9 transformation engine for ETRS89-LAEA/ETRS89. Erroneous geometry for Luxembourg data corrected - Harmonized with standard EEA reference grids (08 Apr 2005). See the Corine land cover 2000 brochure.
