Title: INPUT - Corine Land Cover 2006 - refined version


The Corine Land Cover 2006 - refined version (CLC06r) corresponds to a modified and improved version of the original CORINE Land Cover 2006 (CLC06) map (version 15). The CLC06r has an improved mimimum mapping unit of 1 hectare for all types of artificial surfaces and inland waters while keeping constant the original 100 meter cell size. In addition, the urban fabric class, was reclassified in three new classes, based on the degree of soil sealing. CLC06r was the result of a combination of several high resolution thematic datasats available for Europe such as the CLC change map, Soil Sealing Layer, Tele Atlas® Spatial Database, Urban Atlas, and Water Bodies Data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission.
