CORINE Land Cover 10 ha

The CORINE Land Cover 10 ha (CLC10) data set offers a description of the landscape in vector format under the nomenclature of the CLC classes, which reflect land cover, on the one hand, but also involve aspects of land use, on the other. CLC10 is based on the land cover model Germany 2012 (LBM-DE2012) with its detailed segmentation into land cover (LB) and land use (LN) at the minimum value of 1 ha. Unique CLC classes are derived from the combinations of LB and LN (“CLC2012”). These data will subsequently be generalized for CLC10 to a value of 10 ha.

European CLC-Data are published in a rhythm of 6 years (next reference year 2018), the LBM-DE is updated every 3 years (next update for 2015). If necessary derived products of the data set CLC10 could be generalized every 3 years from the LBM-DE.
