7 - 9 February 2017 | Country visit to Azerbaijan

Countries: Azerbaijan

Inception phase and CCL visit

The aim of the visit is to conduct consultations at national level and agree on the specific targets and implementation steps in the period 2017-2019 (to be reviewed annually) – including actions to identity the potential partners for the CORINE Land Cover mapping activity.

The Abseron peninsula was proposed as a pilot area for Azerbaijan by the State Geodetic Agency. It is geographically diverse, as it includes the capital city and agricultural, semi-natural and water areas.  It has good potential for mapping CLC changes over time with strong urban-industrial sprawl around Baku
