The maps describes the dominant landscape types (artificial dominance, dispersed urban areas, broad pattern intensive agriculture, rural mosaic and pasture, forest, open semi-natural or natural and composite
Reclassify smoothed CLC classess into Dominant Landscape types. The criterion Vn > mean + standard deviation was used to assign dominant character to smoothed features. Vn is the smoothed value of class n in a given cell of the map. A different mean + std dev was computed for each Sea Catchments (see map below). As co-dominances can exist a supplementary criterion is needed in order to give priority to one class in front the others. This hierarchical criterion is based on the theoretical assumption drafted in the table below.
