CORINE X.x second level classification

LUC can use any set of well defined land use classes in principle. Land use classes, the associated color codes, transition probabilities, Rules, and map legends are entirely data driven.

The default land use classes used in LUC (and assigned to any new scenario initially unless defined differently at the GIS landuse map (initial conditions) are based on the EEA CORINE land use classification, which, however, is open for the addition of new classes within the basic hierarchy as required.
