    The Corine Land Cover datasets CLC2000, CLC2006and CLC change 2000-2006 are produced within the frame of the GMES land monitoringproject.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 and 2006.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/.

    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.

    Land Cover (LC) 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 ELF (European Location Project) is here: http://www.elfproject.eu/content/overview. Encoding: INSPIRE version 4

    Gróðurkort af Miðhálendi Íslands [Vegetation map of the Central Highland of Iceland}. Mörk kortlagða svæðisins miðast við svæðisskipulag frá 1999, en innan þess svæðis er 13% lands enn ókortlagt. Gróður á kortinu er flokkaður eftir ríkjandi og einkennandi tegundum plantna í um 100 gróðurfélög eftir gróðurflokkunarkerfi Steindórs Steindórssonar (sjá www.ni.is/sites/ni.is/files/atoms/files/Grodurlykill-20X20kort_Isl_midhalendi.pdf eða www.ni.is/media/midlunogthjonusta/utgafa/utgafa_kort/Grodurlykill-20X20kort_Ensk_midhalendi.pdf). Land sem hefur minni gróðurþekju en 10% er flokkað í 14 landgerðir eftir eðliseiginleikum lands. Gróið land er flokkað í fjóra þekjuflokka þ.e. algróið > 90% gróðurhula, 75% gróðurhula (x), 50% gróðurhula (z) og 25% gróðurhula (þ). Kortið er byggt á mismunandi gömlum vettvangsgögnum NÍ og Rala frá því gróðurkortagerð hófst á Íslandi 1955 til dagsins í dag. Við gerð stafræna kortsins voru öll vettvangsgögn endurteiknuð og uppfærð með skjáteiknun ofan á nýjustu myndkort frá Loftmyndum ehf. og Spot 5 gervitunglamyndum. Nákvæmni kortsins miðast við mælikvarða 1:25.000.

    Gróðurkort af Íslandi (yfirlitskort) sýnir einfaldaða samantekt á ríkjandi gróðursamfélögum. [The vegetation map of Iceland shows the predominant vegetation groups in simplified terms.] Þar sem land hefur nokkuð samfellda gróðurhulu er sýnt hvers eðlis ríkjandi gróðursamfélög eru. Hálfgróið eða minna gróið land flokkast eftir landgerð. Gróðurþekja bersvæðisgróðrar (fitjuflokkur 501) miðast við 50% eða minna. Flákalag, flokkuð eftir ÍST120:2012 staðlinum. [In areas with more-or-less unbroken vegetation cover, the predominant form of vegetation is shown. In regions where vegetation covers half of less of the area, the type of land is indicated.]

    Gróður- og jarðakort (Rala) 1:25.000 NI_G25r_grodurJardaRala. [The Vegetation- and Parcel Map Series (Rala) 1:25.000 NI_G25r_grodurJardaRala comprises 28 map sheets. Sheet index see http://utgafa.ni.is/kort/thumbnails/NI_G25r_grodurJardaRala_bladskipting.pdf.] Á gróður- og jarðarkortum hafa gróðurfélög sem kortlögð voru á vettvangi verið dregin saman í gróðurlendi og gróðursamfélög. Kortin sýna 5 flokka gróðursamfélaga, aðgreind hvert með sínum lit og skiptast í 8 gróðurlendi. Algróið land (þekja gróðurs >2/3) og hálfgróið land (þekja gróðurs 1/3-2/3) hvers gróðursamfélags er sýnd með mismunandi litaáherslum. Á kortunum koma einnig fram landgerðir, landamerki jarða, hreppa- og sýslumörk. 28 kortblöð voru gefin út árin 1985-1990. S-Þingeyjarsýsla (9 kortblöð), Snæfellsnes (11 kortblöð), Höfuðborgarsvæðið austur fyrir Þingvallavatn (8 kortblöð). Landamerki voru unnin í samstarfi við Raunvísindadeild Háskóla Íslands undir stjórn Gylfa Más Guðbergssonar prófessor.

    Gróðurkort af Íslandi (Rala) 1:40.000 (Hálendiskort) NI_G40r_grodurRala. Gróðukort af afréttum og öðrum beitilöndum, sem notuð voru til að ákvarða beitarþol. Kortin eru verðmæt heimild um gróðurfar á miðhálendi Íslands. [The Vegetation Map of Iceland series (Rala) 1:40.000 NI_G40r_grodurRala comprises 65 map sheets. Sheet index see http://utgafa.ni.is/kort/thumbnails/NI_G40r_grodurRala_bladskipting.pdf.] Gróðurkortin eru oft nefnd hálendiskort. Þau sýna gróðurfélög og landgerðir, aðallega á hálendi Íslands. Tilgangur þeirra var að ákvarða beitarþol og stjórna nýtingu beitilanda. Útgefin voru 65 gróðurkort af afréttum, hálendi og öðrum svæðum. Gróður- og landgreining byggir á gróðurlykli Rala sem Steindór Steindórsson tók saman. Á gróðukortum Rala í mælikvarða 1:40.000, er gróður flokkaður í um 90 gróðurfélög sem dregin eru sman í 14 gróðurlendi.
