This technical and methodological guide for updating the CORINE Land Cover (CLC) database is based upon the results of a methodological study concerning the updating of a real Land Cover data set. The study was performed as the JRC's technical support to the CORINE Land Cover project under the responsibility of the Task Force for the European Environmental Agency (DG XI). To implement the defined methodology, a prototype computer system was developed and tested by four national land cover teams. The final evaluation of these tests was done within the framework of the research and development task of the European Topic Centre on Land Cover.
