A Land Cover/Land Use (LCLU) Information System is proposed as a new dynamic and flexible approach to describe landscape objects. It is able to give a deeper and more realistic thematic description by storing membership land cover attributes for each polygon automatically extracted and classified by the T-MAP software. The proposed approach can overcome the traditional "hard" classification by taking directly into account "fuzzy" cover components and making the classification approach more bounded with the polygon characteristics and their changes. The LCLU Information System can be easily integrated with different databases, making it suitable for different nomenclatures and further analysis, regarding environmental indexes, class updating and classification stability assessment. © 2010 IEEE.
