Land cover / land use map of Germany based on MERIS full-resolution data

Gessner, Ursula and Günther, Kurt P. and Maier, Stefan W. (2005) Land cover / land use map of Germany based on MERIS full-resolution data. In: Proceedings of the 2004 Envisat & ERS Symposium, 572. Envisat & ERS Symposium 2004, 6 - 10 September 2004, Salzburg, Austria.

This paper describes first results of a land cover / land use (LCLU) classification of Germany, developed at the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DLR-DFD). The automated, yearly updated product is based on MERIS level 2 full resolution data. The classification procedure consists of two main steps, namely a multispectral and a multitemporal analysis. The legend of the LCLU map is defined according to the classification system LCCS developed by FAO and UNEP. The new product is dedicated indicating land cover / land use changes at medium spatial resolution which are of importance in research areas such as climate change. At a later date, the spatial extension of the map to the entire area of Europe will be performed.
