Copernicus Services: Contributing to the new European baseline for monitoring Land Cover and Land Use

As one of the Entrusted Entities implementing the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS), the European Environment Agency (EEA) is developing the CLC+ Suite of products.

Authoritative data from National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authorities is important input to the CLC+ Backbone (the geospatial component of the CLC+ Suite of products) to complement the production and updating of satellite-data derived land cover data.

“We are delighted to provide data for CLC+ which plays a vital role in supporting key EU policy needs, as well as specific requirements for stakeholders in EU Member States. As a member of EuroGeographics, we fully support the partnership with the EEA to further explore solutions for providing full, free, and open access to geospatial data for the Copernicus programme.”
Gunnar Haukur Kristinsson, Director General, National Land Survey, Iceland
