Georgia: In-depth training on land cover mapping

Corine Land Cover (CLC) datasets have provided a time series of land cover and land use information over the European continent since
1990. These datasets allow for the monitoring of changes to the earth’s surface that result from the interaction of both natural
processes and human activities.

Activity 2.3 of the ENI SEIS II East project “Pilots on extending CORINE Land Cover (CLC) methodology to areas of the partner
countries” is a step to facilitate the access to, and use of, some spatial data required for SEIS implementation at national level.
The objective of the training is to support the production of a CLC status dataset by computer-assisted photo-interpretation of
satellite images and reference data. The work in Georgia is run in parallel with the 2018 update of the CLC layers in the 39 member
and cooperating countries of the European Environment Agency (EEA).

The training is led by experts from the European Topic Centre on Urban, Land and Soil systems (ETC/ULS) in partnership with the
Copernicus Programme, a joint European Union and European Space Agency initiative for a long-term sustainable capacity building in
Earth Observation from space.
