Data description CLC2000

We offer both vector data and derived raster datasets. Every product is available in the projections Gauß-Krueger zone 3, Gauß-Krueger Zone 4 or UTM zone 32. In detail the following products are offered in a nationwide coverage:

(1) CORINE Land Cover vector dataset CLC2000

This product contains the following layers:

  • CORINE Land Cover 2000 (CLC2000)
  • CORINE Land Cover 1990 revised (rev_CLC1990)
  • Changes between 1990 and 2000 (CLC_Changes)

Vector data are available in ArcInfo-exchange format e00 in terms of one single dataset for whole of Germany as well as single datasets of intersected mapsheets TK100 for every federal state. The structure of the attribute tables is as follows.

For Polygons with land cover change between 1990 and 2000 a string is calculated according to this scheme: Code1990->Code2000 (e.g. 211->112)

For change polygons without a real land cover change the value 1 is assigned. Theses are polygons, for which a change is caused by generalisation due to the minimum mapping limits. For all other polygons the value 0 is calculated.

(2) Raster data of CORINE Land Cover 2000

Raster data are available as nationwide datasets with pixel resolutions of 100m x 100 m, 250m x250m und 1km x 1km in the data formats GeoTIFF, ESRI-Grid and img (ERDAS-Imagine). The classification key and the lookup-table is available for download.
