Mapping Land Cover of Europe for 2006 under GMES. Steenmans, C. & Büttner, G. In Proceedings of the 2nd Workshop of the EARSeL SIG on Land Use and Land Cover, pages 202–207, 2006.
abstract   bibtex   
Recent strategic discussions amongst EEA member countries, European Parliament and the main EU institutions responsible for environmental policy, reporting and assessment have underlined an increasing need for factual and quantitative information on the state of the environment to be based on timely, quality assured data, in particular in land cover and land use related issues. [\n] Based on these requirements for 2006-2008, EEA put forward a proposal to collaborate together with the European Commission (EC) and the European Space Agency (ESA) on the implementation of a fast track service on land monitoring. [\n] The GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) fast track service on land monitoring 2006-2008 combines a standard CORINE Land Cover (CLC) update with the production of additional more detailed data for forests and soil sealing at European level based on high resolution multispectral imagery and lower resolution multitemporal data. The service will deliver the following products during 2006-2008: [::] Ortho-rectified satellite images and mosaics for the reference year 2006 (+/- 1 year), referred to as IMAGE2006; [::] CORINE land cover changes 2000-2006; [::] CORINE land cover 2006 (CLC2006) [::] High resolution forest layer 2006 [::] High resolution soil sealing layer 2006 [\n] Geographic coverage is EU25 and neighbouring 13 countries, altogether 5.8 Mkm2 . Results will be freely available through Internet.
