DEGREE OF URBANIZATION: for countries with CORINE LC the followed methodology was: crossing of clc90 with a regular grid of 10 km in order to compute an indicator showing the % of artificial surfaces for each grid cell. The % of artificial surface was then reclassified into 3 categories: low (0-25%), moderate (25-50%) and high (50-100%). The crossing & generalization of coastline in base the artificialisation layer was done by manual digitalisation. Countries without CORINE LC coverage the coastline was digitized using different analog sources.OIL SPILLS and WATER POLLUTION: features were digitized from different analog sources.

At the office, encourage your colleagues to re-use the other side of paper and print less by archiving their emails and attachments. You can also try and create paperless habits. Some studies show that office paper consumption is rising by 20 % per year and web-based technology is actually increasing the printing of documents. On average each worker uses about 50 sheets of A4 per day. Must you print?
