The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently completed and released CORINE 2012 data, this is an update in the CORINE data series.
CORINE stands for Co-ORdinated INformation on the Environment and is a Pan European Land Use & Land Cover Dataset. It is produced by the EPA for the European Environment Agency and has now been produced in 1990, 2000, 2006 & 2012. In this iteration, CORINE 2012, a new more automated production method was developed to reduce the data development time and to improve the final output data. The geometry accuracy of the dataset has been significantly improved through this methodology which should allow for better environmental assessment.
