II.1.4)Short description:

The purpose of this call for tenders is to establish framework service contract(s) with (an) economic operator(s) who can provide the EEA with the following types of products and ancillary consultancy services:

— production of 5 high resolution layers (HRLs) on imperviousness, forest, grassland, wetness and water and small woody features,

— production of biophysical parameters (for imperviousness and forest products),

— reanalysis of the existing imperviousness time series 2006–2009–2012,

The small woody features (SWFs) layer contains woody linear, and small patchy elements, but will not be differentiated into trees and hedgerows. The spatial pattern shall be limited to linear structures and isolated patches (patchy structures) on the basis of geometric characteristics.
