Towards an European Land Cover Monitoring Service and High-Resolution Layers
The current global economic crisis forces nations to pinch and scrape on all their expenses. At the same time the demand for more and better information on the state of environment is increasing, together with more obligations to report on development and to estimate the impacts of environmental and spatial planning policies. Both needs may motivate a much stronger use of remote sensing, as so-called “free data” covering large regions or even continents become more and more important.
