LEAC Land and Ecosystem AccountingThese 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

  • Databases
    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.
  • Layers
    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.
