The CORINE Land Cover Project is aimed at gathering coherent information on land cover for the European Union and at integrating this in a geographical information system (GIS). The methodology is a computer-assisted visual interpretation of earth observation satellite images, with simultaneous consultation of additional data, into the 44 categories of the CORINE Land Cover Nomenclature. The scale of the database is 1 : 100 000. To improve the interpretation result, some adapted class definitions areproposed. A mixed qualitative/quantitative interpretation accuracy assessment procedure was applied to validate the interpretation result. The results were digitized using ARC/INFO software, which is compatible with the overall database structure.
