Provenance information During the production of CORINE 2012, a new, semi-automated production methodology was designed and implemented by the Irish CORINE team. This approach utilised national in-situ geo-spatial information on agriculture, forestry and water bodies from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM), the Forest Service, Coillte and the EPA. These data sources were used alongside remote sensing based interpretation of satellite imagery to extensively revise the 2006 CORINE dataset, improving the spatial delineation (boundaries) of landcover features and also their internal thematic classification. The 2006-2012 change dataset then mapped any changes > 5ha within the reference period of 2006-2012, also making use of up to-date national in-situ vector data. The change dataset was integrated into the revised 2006 dataset to produce the new 2012 landcover update dataset. By revising the 2006 dataset first then mapping changes on from this dataset, accurate statistics on landcover change were produced whilst at the same time ensuring that revisions undertaken on the 2006 dataset were carried through to the 2012 dataset.
