A study was performed at JRC's technical support to the Corine Land Cover project under the responsibility of the Task Force for the European Environmental Agency (DGXI). The result is the Technical and Methodological Guide for updating the Corine Land Cover database published by JRC and EEA in 1998. As a land cover database, the thematic accuracy could be the most important component. It is linked to the process of computer aided image interpretation which is complemented by the use of exogenous data and to the definition of the mapped classes. It means that, for classifying a mapping unit, the interpreter can use all available sources of data; providing they are reliable, the interpreter skilled and with good reference level, those errors must be minimal and the thematic accuracy different according to the nomenclature class.
