The Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS), which is operational since 2012, consists of three main components:
- Global component: Provides a series of bio-geophysical products on the status and evolution of land surface at global scale at mid and low spatial resolution;
- Pan-European component: Provides information about the land cover and land use (LC/LU), land cover and land use changes and land cover characteristics;
- Local component: Focuses on different hotspots, such as areas prone to specific environmental challenges and problems.
On 16 November 2016, the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) issued a Call aiming at setting up and operating the systematic collection and distribution of ground-based observation for validating the EO land products generated in the framework of the global land component.
The deadline for submitting tenders is 16/12/2016.
