CORINE land cover 2006 v 13:


Finished for the most part.


- Fixing some badly imported polygons (at least one in Galicia and some others in Catalonia)

- Deciding which areas can be imported for the province of Madrid.

- Less important: updating tags.


These four CORINE layers are imported for Spain with the tags:

  • 311 - Broad-leaved forest



source=UE CORINE land cover 2006

  • 312 - Coniferous forest



source=UE CORINE land cover 2006

  • 313 - Mixed forest



source=UE CORINE land cover 2006

  • 223 - Olive groves



source=UE CORINE land cover 2006

Geometry process

  1. Downloaded CORINE shapefiles.
  2. Download file natural.shp from (01/01/2011)
  3. Compute difference to avoid most overlappings
  4. Split results in provinces to facilitate upload and inspection
  5. Convert to .osm with gpsbabel
  6. Remove duplicate nodes
  7. Upload to OSM (editing nodes to avoid overlappings if necessary)

If someone does a better import, you can remove the data in this import by using the tag:

source=EU CORINE land cover 2006

In some apps, the white space must be replaced by %20:


To do

· Match tagging scheme uploaded, with international standard Tagging scheme > en español

311 = landuse=forest + wood=deciduous (see talk page)
312 = landuse=forest + wood=coniferous
313 = landuse=forest + wood=mixed
· keep Corine ID in all polygons (see talk page)
