II.1.4)Short description:

This call for tenders aims at the establishment of a framework service contract with an economic operator covering the production of LCLU maps on coastal zones for the reference years 2012 and 2018. In detail the following data outputs are expected:

1) LCLU status map 2012;

2) LCLU change map 2012-2018;

3) LCLU status map 2018.

As a sufficient coverage by VHR2012 dataset cannot be guaranteed beforehand, the contractor is expected to perform an assessment, to verify the completeness of the area of interest coverage with existing and usable VHR2012 imagery. Depending on the degree of available coverage the EEA will decide if the 2012 related LCLU products (status and change) can be implemented or not. Due to the complexity of interests, directives and natural dynamics in coastal zones, the contractor will interact with national stakeholders over the entire project duration.

II.2.3)Place of performance

Main site or place of performance:

All services shall mainly be performed at the future contractor’s own premises, with occasional meetings at the EEA’s premises in Copenhagen or at other locations for Copernicus ad-hoc meetings.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

EEA plays a key role in the development of the Copernicus services, in particular in the technical coordination of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS). The thematic hotspot mapping of CLMS aims, complementary to a more generic wall–to-wall mapping, to provide specific and detailed LC (land cover) and LU (land use) information by addressing specific types of hotspots. CLMS is in close cooperation with Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) to set up a monitoring system that addresses the complex situation in coastal environments. The main scope of this tender is to implement the LCLU mapping of coastal areas with the typical specifications of a thematic hotspot mapping product for the reference years 2012 and 2018 and a Corine Land Cover (CLC) coherent tailored nomenclature.

This call for tenders aims at the establishment of a framework service contract with an economic operator covering the production of LCLU maps on coastal zones for the reference years 2012 and 2018. In detail the following data outputs are expected:

1) LCLU status map 2012;

2) LCLU change map 2012-2018;

3) LCLU status map 2018.

As a sufficient coverage by VHR2012 dataset cannot be guaranteed beforehand, the contractor is expected to perform an assessment, to verify the completeness of the area of interest coverage with existing and usable VHR2012 imagery. Depending on the degree of available coverage the EEA will decide if the 2012 related LCLU products (status and change) can be implemented or not.

Due to the complexity of interests, directives and natural dynamics in coastal zones, it is essential to stay in close contact with national stakeholders over the entire project duration. The contractor is expected to set up a platform for consultation and interaction with stakeholders and national authorities, with the aim of increasing user involvement and uptake of planned and future Coastal Zones monitoring products and activities.
