  • CORINE Land Cover 2012 database of the Netherlands. Land cover of the Netherlands in 2012 based on satellite imagery in combination with ancillary data with reference date around 2012. Land cover mapping according to the CLC class descriptions with minimum mapping unit 25ha. The CORINE Land Cover (CLC) initiative has a longstanding tradition of providing land cover and land use information over Europe at regular time intervals. Over the past few decades, it gradually became one of the flagship european geospatial datasets. For the 2012 release, the global Monitoring for Environment and Security Programme (GMES, now called Copernicus), established in partnership with the European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA), provides a unique opportunity to extend the CLC products with a new series of High Resolution (HR) layers, adressing 5 land cover characteristics that will provide valuable complementary information to the CLC datasets (i.e. imperviousness, forest areas, permanent grassland, wetlands and water bodies). The European Environment Agency (EEA) is responsible for the coordination of the pan-European component of GMES Initial Operations (GIO) Land Monitoring 2011-2013 in the framework of regulation (EU) No 911/2010 – Pan-EU Component. As the EEA highly values the cooperation with EIONET members and cooperating countries they were invited to participate in the production of CLC products and verification and enhancement of the HR layers.

  • Corine Land Cover (CLC) 2012 revised, CLC 2018 and CLC change 2012-2018 are datasets produced within the frame of the Copernicus programme on land monitoring. Corine Land Cover (CLC) provides consistent information on land cover and land cover changes across Europe. This inventory was initiated in 1985 (reference year 1990) and established a time series of land cover information with updates in 2000, 2006 and 2012, being the last one the 2018 reference year. CLC products are based on photointerpretation of satellite images by national teams of participating countries - the EEA member and cooperating countries – following a standard methodology and nomenclature with the following base parameters: 44 classes in the hierarchical three level Corine nomenclature; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for status layers is 25 hectares; minimum width of linear elements is 100 metres; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for Land Cover Changes (LCC) for the change layers is 5 hectares. The resulting national land cover inventories are further integrated into a seamless land cover map of Europe. Land cover and land use (LCLU) information is important not only for land change research, but also more broadly for the monitoring of environmental change, policy support, the creation of environmental indicators and reporting. CLC datasets provide important datasets supporting the implementation of key priority areas of the Environment Action Programmes of the European Union as protecting ecosystems, halting the loss of biological diversity, tracking the impacts of climate change, assessing developments in agriculture and implementing the EU Water Framework Directive, among others.
