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.

CLC 2012: This is a national landuse landcover dataset for 2012 produced at a 25 hectare resolution.

CLCC 2006-2012: This is a national landuse landcover change dataset produced at a 5 hectare resolution and identifies change between 2006 & 2012.

Revised CLC 2006: This is a revised national landuse landcover dataset for 2006 produced at a 25 hectare resolution. It is revised based on the changes to the production methodology and allowed for the accurate production of CLC 2012 & CLCC 2006-2012 data.
