Product Characteristics : consistency in time, geometry and quality.
Reference Year 2000 Time consistency: To assure temporal consistency, satellite data is required for
the reference year 2000, allowing a deviation of maximum ?1-year (1999/2001).
For land cover purposes, identification data is selected within an optimal acquisition
period for each country.
One image provider: Image2000 is produced from ETM+ Landsat 7 satellite, providing
both multi-spectral (25 m) and panchromatic data (12.5 m).
Centralised management and production
Geometry consistency: As a multi-purpose product, Image2000 meets user requirements
at National and European level. The images are delivered ortho-rectified in
National projection systems, and one European projection system.
Quality consistency: Image purchase, ortho-rectification and quality control
is centralised. This centralised approach gives advantages in overall management
and assures consistency in quality of the end product.
Image2000 consists of:
Mosaic of Europe compatible with the national mosaics.
Resolution and radiometry of satellite data is compatible with satellite
data used for former Corine Land Cover (CLC90).
No atmospheric calibration is applied, only standard radiometric corrections
such as destriping, dropline correction and bit errors.
The main product types are :
Product 1 : Individual orthorectified scenes in national map projection system (approximately 1000 scenes, 25m resolution (multispectral)
and 12.5m panchromatic). Available for download.
Product 2 : National image mosaics. An interim product, not distributed.
Product 5 : European mosaic. A harmonised dataset from the individual Product 1 scenes
