Scenographies: Landscapes

The Main categories: Scenographies are split into the list which includes items to be drawn: Urban/Rural (Civil engineering works, Residential Buildings, Sport and Recreation Constructions) Primary, Secondary & Tertiary production (Economic Activities and Land Use for buildings) and Forest and semi-natural areas & Water bodies (Landscapes).

Landscapes refer to the physical and biological cover over the surface of land, including water, vegetation and bare soil. (3 groups at Level 1, 8 sub-groups at Level 2 and 37 classes at Level 3.). We did create our own Landscapes classification for the project based on different Land Cover classification systems such Corine Land Cover Classification and Baseline Classification of Land Cover Categories of National Importance. Also we did extend with Land Cover Classification System from F.A.O (LCCS-a, LCCS-b) and Land Use And Land Cover Classification System For Use With Remote Sensor Data by James R. Anderson.
