Abstract: Given the current lack of interoperability between global and regional land cover products, efforts are underway to link the new European global land cover map (GLOBCOVER) with the existing global land cover 2000 map (GLC2000) and European CORINE mapping initiative. Since both datasets apply different mapping standards, key for a successful implementation is a thorough understanding of the heterogeneities among both datasets. Thus, this paper provides an assessment of compatibilities and differences between the CORINE2000 and GLC2000 datasets. The comparative assessment considers inconsistencies between the thematic legends (using the UN land cover classification system-LCCS), class specific accuracies, and the spatial resolution and heterogeneity of the datasets. The results are summarized with implications for the development of the new GLOBCOVER datasets.
