Dear mappers,

I wish to announce the planned import of the Corine 2006 land cover
data set for the Republic of Ireland, as outlined here:


The quick summary: After this import, the map will have lots more
pretty colours corresponding to whether an area is urban, farmland,
pasture, forest, bog etc. Zoom into France or Romania to get an idea
of how this will look.

Pay special attention if you have mapped land cover areas yourself -
parks, forests, lakes, even landuse=residential. As currently planned,
the import will lay down overlapping polygons over the ones you
already mapped - it's messy, but simple. We will then need to do some
- hopefully not much - work to de-duplicate. The benefit of doing this
manually is that we can keep the best version.

If you have an opinion on this import, please voice it promptly so we
have a chance to benefit from your input.

Happy mapping!

Igaühel on siin oma laul
ja ma oma ei leiagi üles
