This paper presents preliminary results of updated land use-land cover (LULC) maps for two Spanish provinces using MERIS-FR images, data from the Third National Forest Inventory (NFI3) ground plots, and the European database CORINE Land Cover 2000 (CLC2000). Legend categories were defined using the FAO legend-based European Global Land Cover (GLC2000) product. The applied methodology is based on maximum likelihood supervised classification of MERIS-FR images. The delimitation of training areas was based on the NFI3 ground plots and CLC2000. High overall accuracies were obtained for Navarra (73.67%) and Murcia (73.70%). These preliminary results show that MERIS-FR data allow an operational development of LULC maps/products at medium scales. Results from the comparison between MERIS-based classifications and available thematic maps are also presented.
