The land theme is divided into four main components: Global, Pan-European, Local and Imagery and reference data. This includes information on land cover characteristics and changes, land use, vegetation state, water cycle and Earth surface energy variables.
The course provides an overview of search engines through which data on land cover can be obtained.
