  • Linear Landscape Elements

    Maps of full European cover are available for green lines (green vegetative elements), ditches and grass margins. These maps are based on a spatial modeling approach using ground observations on linear features from the 2009 LUCAS (Land Use/Cover area Frame Statistical Survey, www.lucas-europa.info) database. The dataset has a spatial resolution of 1km2...
  • Landelijk Grondgebruik Nederland (LGN)

    Het Landelijk Grondgebruiksbestand Nederland (LGN) is een landsdekkend bestand gebaseerd op een combinatie van geodata waarbij satellietgegevens een belangrijke informatie bron zijn. Het LGN-bestand geeft het landgebruik voor 39 klassen weer. Sinds 1986 wordt het bestand met een frequentie van eens per 3-5 jaar gemaakt. Eind december 2013 is de nieuwste...
  • Market Influence Data

    Market influence data sets Markets influence the global patterns of urbanization, deforestation, agriculture and other land use systems. Here we present a high spatial resolution gridded data depicting market influence globally. The data jointly represent variations in both market strength and accessibility based on three market influence indices derived...

  • Global potentially available cropland

    Global land availability estimates Based on a synthesis of the assumptions underlying current global estimates of cropland availability we constructed maps of a high, a medium, and a low estimate that are representative of the range of estimates in the studies reviewed for this research. The maps are in the equal area projection Eckert IV with a...
  • Global Land Systems

    Global Land System Classification Current global scale land-change models used for integrated assessments and climate modeling are based on classifications of land cover, often using a resolution of 0.5 degree (approximately 50 x 50 km at the equator). To improve such assessments we have developed a new global representation of land cover and land use, at...
