Training on Corine Land Cover (CLC) methodology in Azerbaijan

Corine Land Cover (CLC) datasets have provided a time series of land cover and land use information across Europe since 1990. These data sets allow monitoring changes to the Earth’s surface that result from the interaction of 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 access to and use of some spatial data required for implementing SEIS at national level. 

The training is led by experts from the European Topic Centre of Urban, Land and Soil Systems (ETC-ULS) in partnership with the Copernicus Programme; the European Union’s Earth Observation and Monitoring programme. Earth observation from space. 

The Technical Specifications for the activity are available in the document below:
