Title:Main Title: CORINE Land Cover (CLC) 2006, Version 17
Description:Abstract: The pan-European project CORINE Land Cover (CLC) is part of the EU-program Coordinate Information on the Environment (CORINE) and provides consistent and comparable data on land cover and land use on a scale of 1:100.000 based on remote sensing data. During the implementation period 1985-1990 an information system on the state of the European environment was established, nomenclatures and methodologies were developed and agreed at European level. 1990 is the reference-year for the first data acquisition (CLC1990). The CLC data inventory was first updated to the reference-year 2000 (CLC2000). A second update was finalised in 2010 to the reference-year 2006 (CLC2006) with 39 participating countries. Both updates also provide layers of change-analysis. The CLC inventories are key reference data sets which provide the basis for a wide variety of environmental analysis and integrated environmental assessment at European and national levels. The CLC data-products are provided by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in raster (100x100m, 250x250m) and seamless vector format (reference-system ETRS89 / ETRS-LAEA). The CLC2006 vector data were merged to one dataset and clipped to the study-area´s extent, both Rur-Catchment and extent of the DWD-Radar coverage area (ESRI-Shapefile). The CLC2006 raster data, both 250m and 100m spatial resolution, were clipped to the abovementioned extents and projected to WGS84 (GeoTIFF).
