1. Enrichment of the land cover, land use databases.

This work package is dealing with the production of the best possible automated land cover and land cover changes based on a time series of Sentinel-2 data for the study area in Poland and Norway. Verification of the EAGLE concept by interlinking satellite-based land cover (LC) with land use (LU) information and other landscape characteristics (CH) derived from national databases and the products of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS). Coordinated by the Institute of Geodesy and Cartography (IGIK).

Specific Tasks:
Task 1.1: Land cover classification based on Sentinel-2 imagery
Task 1.2: Assessment of the existing databases
Task 1.3: Population of the land cover with the information on the land use

Current activities:
The team at IGiK is currently developing land cover classification for the pilot area at the Łódź province (Poland) and Viken country (Norway). The classification is carried out using a time series of Sentinel-2 data for the reference year 2018 and 2020.  The classification is performed using the advance non-parametric machine learning algorithms.
