Demonstration of the land cover map for Luxembourg

The high-resolution land cover 2018 project has the objective to develop and test an object-based image analysis (OBIA) approach to obtain land cover information based on near infrared (NIR) aerial images for the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

A major component of the project is to produce an up-to-date land cover map of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for 2018 with 0.2 m spatial resolution. In addition, we tested the importance of using 3D topographical data obtained based on Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and intra-annual SENTINEL time series to obtain a high quality land cover map. The project is a follow-up of the Land Information System Luxembourg (LIS-L) project aiming at mapping land cover (LC) and land use (LU) in Luxembourg for 2015.
