  • The objective of the pan-European project CORINE Land Cover (CLC) is the provision of a unique and comparable data set of land cover for Europe and the delivery of regular updates to register also the land cover and land use changes over time. It is part of the European Union programme CORINE (Coordination of Information on the Environment). The mapping of the land cover and land use was performed on the basis of satellite remote sensing images. The first CLC data base CLC1990, which was finalized in the 1990s, consistently provided land use information comprising 44 classes, out of which 37 classes are relevant in Germany. The first two updates for Europe were based on the reference years 2000 and 2006. For Germany, DLR-DFD was responsible for the creation of CLC2000 and CLC2006 on behalf of the Federal Environment Agency. In addition to the updated land cover, change datasets were also parts of the project. For deriving a meaningful CLC2000 change product, it became necessary to re-interprete parts of the satellite data of 1990 and to create a revised product, called CLC1990 (rev). Further details:

  • The RapidEye Earth observation system comprises five satellites equipped with high-resolution optical sensors. Co-funded by the German Federal Government, the fleet of satellites was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan in 2008. RapidEye is now being owned by Planet Labs, Inc. The RapidEye constellation is capable of taking images of the Earth's surface at high repeat rates. Each point on Earth can be imaged at least once per day. With a spatial resolution of 6.5 m the 5-band sensors onboard the RapidEye satellites operate in the visible and near-infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. For more information see or The RapidEye Science Archive (RESA), which allows Germany-based researchers to apply for free RapidEye imagery, is now being operated by Planet Labs Germany GmbH.
