Copernicus CORINE Land Cover (COPERNICUS/CORINE/V18_5_1/100m)

Version V18.5.1

The CORINE (coordination of information on the environment) Land Cover
(CLC) inventory was initiated in 1985 to standardize data collection on land
in Europe to support environmental policy development. The project is
coordinated by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in the frame of the EU
Copernicus programme and implemented by national teams. The number of
participating countries has increased over time currently including 33 (EEA)
member countries and six cooperating countries (EEA39) with a total area of
over 5.8 Mkm2.

The reference year of the first CLC inventory was 1990 and the first update
created in 2000. Later, the update cycle has become 6 years. Satellite
imagery provides the geometrical and thematic basis for mapping with in-situ
data as essential ancillary information. The basic technical parameters of
CLC (i.e. 44 classes in nomenclature, 25 hectares minimum mapping unit
(MMU), and 100 meters minimum mapping width) have not changed since the
beginning, therefore the results of the different inventories are
