Short summary
The Land Use/Cover Area frame Survey (LUCAS) is a regular in situ land cover and land use ground survey exercise that extends over the whole of the European Union. A new LUCAS module specifically tailored to Earth observation was introduced in 2018: the LUCAS Copernicus module. This paper summarizes the LUCAS Copernicus survey and provides the unique resulting data: 58 426 polygons with level-3 land cover (66 specific classes including crop type) and land use (38 classes).
