Land and Ecosystem Accounting (LEAC)
These are basic questions that can be answered in few minutes using the tools provided by the LEAC project (ETC-LUSI, European Topic Centre on Land Use and Spatial Information). LEAC is based on a powerful methodology that allows the spatial analysis of land cover change through all the European territory.
Online data and layers
The core data of the LEAC project have been structured in a relational database model in order to allow quick and easy analyses. These databases have been made publicly accessible through the Internet.
From the LEAC database, various geographical layers have been derived such as land cover flows, Corilis, the green potential background layer and the dominant land-cover types.
