European Landcover map

Its difficult to know whether this is good or bad news.


On the one hand the technical achievement that is GlobCorine; a 300m resolution european landcover map geneterated from 2009 MERIS data and published only 10 months later – is very impresive .

On the other it is yet another source of landcover data over which we have no control that will used (and ill-used) to beat Ireland with because we do not have out own programme or data with which we can either check the european product or use to argue against conclusions made about Irish landuse from the european map (  a single allocation of landcover at 300m hides a lot of detail inIreland)
