Land cover

The main high resolution grassland product is the Grassland layer, a grassland/non-grassland mask for the EEA39. This grassy and non-woody vegetation baseline product includes all kinds of grasslands: managed grassland, semi-natural grassland and natural grassy vegetation. It is a binary status layer for the 2015 reference year mapping grassland and all non-grassland areas in 20m and (aggregated) 100m pixel size and for the 2018 reference year - in 10m and (aggregated) 100m pixel size. The production of the high resolution grassland layers was coordinated by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in the frame of the EU Copernicus programme.

Data origin:

Thematic accuracy: The thematic accuracy assessment will be made on the primary layer, the grassland mask. The target will be set at 85 % to be achieved within each biogeographic region. A quantitative approach will be used based on a set of stratified random point samples compared to external datasets (e.g. GoogleEarth, national orthophotos or national grassland datasets). Achieved overall accuracy: 96.66%. Geometric accuracy (positioning accuracy): Less than half a pixel. According to ortho-rectified satellite image base delivered by ESA.
