The European Collaborative Programme on remote sensing in land use, agriculture, forestry and environmental protection is reviewed. A description of the various themes of the programme and the various studies carried out within the framework of the programme, constitute the background for advancing some ideas on a general landscape ecological digital map for Europe. A slight bias towards a theory of science approach was adopted in the discussion of the foundation of the map. The aim is to establish a firm, accepted definition of the intended primary use of such a map and to start an evaluation process as soon as possible.
