Europe’s land cover on DVD
Corine land cover 2000 - A seamless vector database
CLC 2000 maps land cover and land cover changes across 32 European countries using photo-interpretation of satellite images. The seamless vector database allows users to do borderless, pan-European analysis on land cover.
Among its many applications, CLC2000 can be used for assessing the impact of climate change and monitoring urban development. Primarily intended as a tool for national and European policymakers, CLC 2000 has also been found to be useful in commercial products, such as on-line maps and navigation systems.‘CLC 2000 – A seamless vector database’ is available from the EEA Data Service
