New covariate: Corine Land Cover 2012

The land cover data sets available in EURODEER that included data from 1990, 2000 and 2006 at 100 m resolution have been extended with Corine Land Cover data set for 2012 (both as raseter 100 m resolution and as vector). It is a consistent inventory of land cover over the whole Europe in 44 classes. CLC uses a Minimum Mapping Unit (MMU) of 25 hectares (ha) for areal phenomena and a minimum width of 100 m for linear phenomena. It is generated by photointerpretation of high resolution satellite images. Corine Land Cover datasets are provided by Copernicus.
