HIGH RESOLUTION LAYERS

Brief description: High resolution layers (HRL) is a dataset created by using „Copernicus" Earth monitoring program data. It provides information on specific land cover characteristics for 2015. The layers are complementary to land cover / land use mapping such as in the CORINE land cover (CLC) datasets. The data is created by using satellite photos and combining automatic image processing with interactive, rule-based data grouping.

HRL contains these classes:

  • Imperviousness layer capture the percentage and change of soil sealing.
  • Forest layer is divided into two parts - tree density, which contains tree cover density data from 1% to 100%, and dominant leaf type layer, which shows broadleaved or coniferous majority.
  • Grassland layer, which shows the distribution of grasslands in various states: natural, semi-natural and used for farming.
  • Water and wetness, which shows the occurrence of water and wet surfaces over the period from 2009 to 2015. This layer is divided into 4 parts - permanent bodies of water, short-term water bodies, permanent wetlands and temporary wetlands.
