CORINE Land Cover (CLC) is a seamless European land cover vector database. The Norwegian CLC for the reference year 2006 (CLC2006) was completed by the Norwegian Forest and Landscape Institute (Skog og landskap) in 2009 and was produced according to CLC2006 technical guidelines (EEA 2007). CLC has a common nomenclature with 44 classes that is used throughout Europe. 31 of these classes are found in the Norwegian dataset. A coordinating Technical Team from the European Topic Centre on Land Use and Spatial Information (ETC-LUSI) is coordinating the mapping efforts ensuring that the classification is applied in a similar fashion in each country....

All the Norwegian CLC2006 classes are documented through descriptive statistical “profiles” of the actual contents in each class. The CLC2006 profiles are worked through based on an overlay operation between CLC2006 and AR5 (under the timberline) and AR50 (above the timberline). Based on this dataset statistics are generated, that shows the percent distribution of AR5 and AR50 classes in each CLC2006 class. The study was carried out with funding from the Norwegian Space Centre.

CORINE Land Cover (CLC) is a seamless European land cover vector database. The Norwegian CLC2000 was completed by the Norwegian Forest and Landscape Institute (Skog og landskap) in 2008 and was produced from existing national land cover datasets wherever available. CLC has a standardized nomenclature with 44 classes. 31 classes are represented in the Norwegian dataset. CLC is a small scale map showing built up areas, agriculture, forest and semi-natural areas, wetlands and water bodies. CLC has a minimum mapping unit of 25 ha. CLC2000 can be used for visualization of the general land cover patterns in Norway at a scale 1:250 000 or smaller. CLC2000 is representing the land cover situation close to year 20001. This report presents the Norwegian CLC2000 project and the methods and automatic generalization processes that were used in the project. CORINE Land Cover is one of four land cover maps (AR5, AR50, AR250 and CLC) published by Skog og landskap. CLC2000 was produced with support from the European Environmental Agency (EEA) who has joint ownership to the product....
