CLC2018 Support Package is a software tool for European CLC2018 change
detection and mapping. It is a significantly modified and improved
version of the CLC2012 Support Package.
CLC2018 software is a set of standalone applications developed with
Embarcadero Delphi 10 and TatukGIS Developer Kernel 11.
Thus user does not need to purchase, install and tune any other software
to carry out CLC2018 change mapping.
CLC2018 Support Package is a customized, task-oriented software tool, that significantly facilitates updating, change detection, quality control and correction of CORINE land cover databases by means of computer-assisted visual photointerpretation. This software is therefore not applicable for creating, viewing or editing GIS databases in general. For these purposes one can use any common commercial (e.g. ESRI ArcGIS) or free (e.g. QGIS) software.
Minimum system requirements
- IBM PC compatible computer,
- 3 GHz processor,
- 4 GB RAM,
- 19" monitor, at least 1280x1024
- Windows 7, 8.1, 10 (32 or 64 bit)
Professional integrated software development environment for creating
applications for arbitrary purposes. Delphi was originally developed
by Borland Software Corporation as a rapid application development
tool for Windows, based on the Object Pascal programming language.
Since 2008 Embarcadero Technologies owns Borland's developer tools
Last versions generate native code for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows operating
systems, as well as for 32-bit Mac OS X, iOS and Android operating system.
The TatukGIS Developer Kernel is a comprehensive GIS Visual Componenet
Library for the custom development of stand-alone, embedded, and client-server
applications using object-oriented languages. The Developer Kernel is generally
oriented to open standards and designed to comply with a number of OGC
(Open Geospatial Consortium) standards.
LUCAS (Land Use/Cover Area frame statistical Survey) is co-ordinated by the Statistical Office of the European Commission (Eurostat). Land cover refers to the bio-physical coverage of land (e.g. crops, grass, broad-leaved forest, or build-up area). Land use indicates the socio-economic use of land (e.g. agriculture, forestry, recreation or residential use). LUCAS land use/cover data are used among others to calculate Sustainable Development Indicators, Land take and Agro Environmental Indicators to support spatial planning in Europe.
InterCheck program serves for the checking of revised CLC2012 and CLC-Change map. InterCheck program has been prepared primarily for supporting the CLC2018 Technical Team, although national central teams might apply it as a tool for final checking of the completed CLC2018 and CLC-Change databases. InterCheck can be used for checking revised CLC2012 or CLC2018 and CLC-Change databases in many file formats (ESRI shapefile, etc.), i.e. not only those that has been prepared with InterChange.
