Formation of new land cover in the region of Valencia, Spain
The image shows the situation in 2000, and highlights the areas where new types of land cover have been formed (see legend). Land cover across the other parts of the satellite image have been classified as unchanged according to the CLC methodology, which maps change only for parcels that exceed 5 hectares. The unchanging areas are not shown and so the satellite image "shows through".
