More information

The data source are aggregated country level figures from a version of the CUBE, derived by aggregating the three 100m status layers for imperviousness as published on the Copernicus Land Portal  (see links below). The data was also used for the existing EEA imperviousness indicator for 2006-2009  and (for the 2012 data) in the indicator publication that is currently ongoing (2009-2012 period). The figures for 2009 are slightly different as opposed to the figures used here due to an improved method of aggregating the original 100m products to country level.
