Paper Abstract

The European Comission introduced the CORINE Programme in 1985 in order to gather information relating to the environment for the European Union. CORINE land cover classification is produced using satellite images and visual interpretation. In Finland, CORINE has been made differently in order to produce more detailed national land cover information at the same time. Finnish CORINE 2000 was based on automated interpretation of satellite images and data integration with existing digital map data. Same process will be repeated with CORINE 2006 as well as possible. The outputs are IMAGE2006 satellite images and mosaics, CORINE 2006 land cover classification and changes 2000-2006. These will be produced in different spatial resolutions: national raster data with spatial resolution of satellite images and European LC and LC changes with MMU of 25 and 5 hectares produced using mainly automated generalization procedures.
