TaLAM – Toward Landcover Accounting and Monitoring

The goal of the EPA-funded TaLAM project (2014-2016) is to develop a process for mapping landcover that is compatible with CORINE and future developments in Copernicus (formerly GMES), whilst also overcoming the two major limitations of the CORINE national landcover product, namely the inadequate spatial and temporal resolution, and the inappropriate thematic classes. The project will produce a system that can populate OSi PRIME2 (P2) parcels at a 1:10,000 scale with landcover labels and a minimum mapping unit (MMU) of 1ha in unenclosed P2 polygons, but can also be downgraded spatially and thematically to CORINE reporting requirements (of 25ha MMU and change at 5ha).
