    Corine Land Cover (CLC) 2012 and CLC change 2006-2012 are two of the datasets produced within the frame of the Initial Operations of the Copernicus programme (the European Earth monitoring programme previously known as GMES) on land monitoring.Corine Land Cover (CLC) provides consistent information on land cover and land cover changes across Europe. This inventory was initiated in 1985 (reference year 1990) and established a time series of land cover information with updates in 2000, 2006 and 2012 being the last one. CLC products are based on photointerpretation of satellite images by national teams of participating countries - the EEA member and cooperating countries – following a standard methodology and nomenclature with the following base parameters: 44 classes in the hierarchical three level Corine nomenclature; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for status layers is 25 hectares; minimum width of linear elements is 100 metres; minimum mapping unit (MMU) for Land Cover Changes (LCC) for the change layers is 5 hectares. The resulting national land cover inventories are further integrated into a seamless land cover map of Europe. Land cover and land use (LCLU) information is important not only for land change research, but also more broadly for the monitoring of environmental change, policy support, the creation of environmental indicators and reporting. CLC datasets provide important datasets supporting the implementation of key priority areas of the Environment Action Programmes of the European Union as protecting ecosystems, halting the loss of biological diversity, tracking the impacts of climate change, assessing developments in agriculture and implementing the EU Water Framework Directive, among others.More about the Corine Land Cover (CLC) and Copernicus land monitoring data in general can be found at http://land.copernicus.eu/.

    The main high resolution grassland product is the Grassland layer, a grassland/non-grassland mask for the EEA39 area. This grassy and non-woody vegetation baseline product includes all kinds of grasslands: managed grassland, semi-natural grassland and natural grassy vegetation. It is a binary status layer mapping grassland and all non-grassland areas in 20m and (aggregated) 100m pixel size. Two additional (expert) products complete the high resolution grassland product: the Ploughing Indicator (PLOUGH) and the Grassland Vegetation Probability Index (GRAVPI). While the PLOUGH concentrates on historic land cover features with the aim to indicate ploughing activities in preceding years, the GRAVPI provides a measure of classification reliability. GRAVPI is a 20m pixel size product, mapping on a range of 1-100 the class probability. PLOUGH is a 20m pixel size additional product, mapping from 1-6 the number of years since the last indication of ploughing. A verification of the Grassland layer was performed by the National Land Survey of Iceland during autumn of 2018 and the data and resulting report are made available on the NLSI websites.

    Administrative Units (AU) is one of 12 themes in the European Location Project (ELF). The purpose of ELF is to create harmonised cross-border, cross-theme and cross-resolution pan-European reference data from national contributions. The goal is to provide INSPIRE compliant data for Europe. A description of the ELF (European Location Project) is here: http://www.elfproject.eu/content/overview Encoding: INSPIRE version 4

    ELF Transport Networks (TN) Iceland is one of 12 themes in the European Location Project (ELF). The purpose of ELF is to create harmonised cross-border, cross-theme and cross-resolution pan-European reference data from national contributions. The goal is to provide INSPIRE-compliant data for Europe. A description of the ELF (European Location Project) is here: http://www.elfproject.eu/content/overview. The transport layer contains both line and polygons. The linelayer shows the transport network but the polygon layer contains the airports. Encoding: INSPIRE version 4

    Nú hafa Landmælingar Íslands útbúið vefkort með því að staðsetja og klippa saman hin svokölluðu Herforingjaráðskort. Eftirfarandi lýsing á Herforingjaráðskortum er tekin af vef Landsbókasafns: Á síðasta áratug 19. aldar varð dönskum yfirvöldum ljóst að þau kort sem til voru af Íslandi stæðust ekki þær kröfur sem gera þyrfti í samfélagi þess tíma. Bestu kort af Íslandi sem buðust voru í stórum dráttum byggð á strandmælingum danska sjóhersins sem fram fóru á árunum 1801-1818 annars vegar og hins vegar á kortum Björns Gunnlaugssonar sem byggð voru á fyrrnefndum strandmælingum og eigin mælingum Björns á árunum 1831-1843. Á fjárlögum 1899 voru veittar 5000 krónur og skyldi hefja nýjar þríhyrninga- og strandmælingar á Reykjanesi. Árið 1900 var gefin út í Danmörku tilskipun um að sendur skyldi leiðangur til Íslands til að mæla hér grunnlínu og hnattstöðu. Síðan var ætlunin að mæla þríhyrninganet út frá nýju grunnlínunni. Hingað voru sendir danskir liðsforingjar og sumarið 1900 var unnin ýmis undirbúningsvinna. Árið 1902 höfðu fjárveitingar verið auknar svo að rétt þótti að hefjast handa. Byrjað var á Hornafirði og mælt vestur ströndina og um lágsveitir Suðurlands en uppsveitum og hálendi frestað. Verkinu var svo haldið áfram tvö næstu árin en féll niður 1905 vegna fjárskorts og annarra anna hjá Landmælingadeild danska herforingjaráðsins (Generalstabens topografiske Afdeling) er tókst verkið á hendur. Eftir eins árs bið var þráðurinn tekinn upp að nýju enda bættist nú við fjárstyrkur úr ríkissjóði Dana. Á árunum 1906-1914 var unnið öll sumur, nema 1909, þegar ekkert var aðhafst. Var þá lokið byggðamælingum sunnanlands og mælt um Vesturland, norður og austur um Húnaflóa. Árangurinn var 117 kortblöð af þriðjungi landsins, suður- og vesturhluta, í mælikvarða 1:50.000 (auk nokkurra sérkorta af afmörkuðum svæðum). Þau eru gjarnan nefnd herforingjaráðskortin í höfuðið á þeim sem stóðu fyrir gerð þeirra.

    Vatnajökulsþjóðgarður var formlega stofnaður 7. júní 2008, en lög um hann tóku gildi 1. maí 2007. Vatnajökulsþjóðgarður er langstærsti þjóðgarður Íslands, 14.703 km2. Þjóðgarðurinn var samþykktur á heimsminjaskrá UNESCO 5. júlí 2019. Skráin sýnir mörk Vatnajökulsþjóðgarðs eftir stækkun hans 10. ágúst 2019. Mörkin eru teiknuð í samræmi við reglugerð um Vatnajökulsþjóðgarð, nr. 608/2008 og þær sjö breytingar á henni sem tengjast þjóðgarðsmörkum. Nýjasta viðbótin er svæði við og í Jökulsárgljúfrum. Sá fyrirvari er á gögnunum að ef það er misræmi milli gagnanna og texta í reglugerð, þá gildir reglugerðartextinn. Vatnajökull National Park was founded on June 7th 2008, although the act on Vatnajökull National Park was entered into force on May 1st 2007. It is the largest national park in Iceland by far, 14,703 km2. Vatnajökull National Park was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 5th 2019. The boundary of Vatnajökull National Park, after its latest expansion on August 10th 2019. The boundary is drawn in accordance to regulation on Vatnajökull National Park, No 608/2008, and its seven amendments which have changed the boundary. The latest addition is a small area in and around Jökulsárgljúfur. Disclaimer: If there is a difference between the data and the regulation text, then the regulation text applies.
