there are only 8 main classes:
and you can easily determine them through a decision matrix:
1. primarily vegetated or primarily non-vegetated?
2. terrestrial or aquatic/flooded regularly?
3. cultivated/man made/artificial or natural?
then they add additional properties like life forms, crops, leaf types,
>From the combination of these properties and classes, detailed land cover
classes are determined:
*Example of the formation of land cover classes*
*EXAMPLE: "NATURAL AND SEMI-NATURAL TERRESTRIAL VEGETATION" (A12)*
*Standard class name*
Life form and cover
High closed forest
Continuous closed forest
Broad-leaved closed forest
Broad-leaved deciduous forest
2nd layer: LF, C, H
Multi-layered broad-leaved deciduous forest
3rd layer: LF, C, H
Multi-layer broad-leaved deciduous forest with emergents
PS: And the best: LCCS comes as a run time application, you do not need to
have virtual basic installed !!11!!!
