space4environment is developing a land information system for Luxembourg. The ESA funded project has a duration of 2 years. It includes an update of OBS – the national land cover database – using VHR Pleiades satellite images and the set-up of a grid-based information system compatible with CLC and based on the EAGLE principles, i.e. the characterisation of landscape elements instead of their classification.

The project is carried out in collaboration with the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). The national user group is coordinated by the Ministry for Sustainable Development and Infrastructures (MDDI).
