This land cover map encompasses most of the countries of Europe and provides dynamic access to 1990, 2000 and 2006 Corine Land Cover datasets. Choose a layer for each of the two maps from the map legend pull-down menu (open and close from the triangular icons). Zoom into your area of interest and use the slider bar to see land cover changes. Data are available as 100 meter pixel raster images at small scales up to 1:800.000 and at higher scales as vectors. The smallest surfaces mapped (minimum mapping units) correspond to 25 hectares. Linear features less than 100 m in width are not considered. The scale of the output product was fixed at 1:100.000. Thus, the location precision of the CLC database is 100 m. (To close the legend or map description, click on the map).
Keep your dog on a lead if it is likely to run off and disturb wildlife.
In particular, be careful of nesting birds in early spring and early summer, and roosting or feeding birds in winter. If you have a dog, keep this in mind when you're taking it for a walk!
