Additional information

  • Data on land cover is necessary for the Environment policy as well as for other policies such as Regional Development and Agriculture. At the same time it provides one of the basic inputs for the production of more complex information on other themes (soil erosion, pollutant emission into the air by the vegetation, etc.). The objectives of the land cover project are: - to provide those responsible for and interested in the European policy on the environment with quantitative data on land cover, consistent and comparable across Europe; - to prepare one comprehensive land cover database for the 15 EC Member States and other European and North African countries, at an original scale of 1: 100 000, using 44 classes of the 3-level Corine nomenclature. See the Corine land cover 1990 brochure.

Geographical coverage note: data set includes parts of Marocco and Tunisia.
