Additional information

It does, however, represent a consistent and improved classification for the whole of the European continent, with respect to the data derived from the VEGETATION instrument. This is essential not only for management and monitoring of European ecosystems, but also, in being directly related to a global land cover product, is valuable for putting the land cover of Europe in a global context.
Geographical coverage: covers part of Russia (to Ural) and part of Kazakhstan
