LIS-L - Land Information System for Luxembourg (lisl.list.lu)

The LIS-L project had the objective to develop and test a land information and land monitoring system for the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, which gives access to summary land use and land cover statistics for different aggregated grid resolutions and/or reporting units, such as municipalities or districts.

The project involves an update and revision of the 2007 OBS (Occupation Biophysique du Sol) database, originally with 78 land use and land cover classes, for the reference year of 2015 and the introduction of a new land monitoring concept, i.e. the separate mapping of 7 land cover and >50 land use classes. The mapping is based on 1m VHR satellite images (Pleiades) and intra-annual time-series of SPOT5-Take 5 images, applying a Minimum Mapping Unit of 50m2 (25m2 in case of built-up areas).

The comparison of OBS2007 and the new data from 2015 shows that approximately 0.5ha per day have been converted to artificial surfaces.

A draft version of the land information system, including a map viewer and an online query interface to explore the new land cover and land use data and statistics is available here: https://lisl.list.lu/
