      LUCAS is the acronym of Land Use and Cover Area frame Survey. The aim of the LUCAS survey is to gather harmonised information on land use, land cover and environmental parameters. The survey also provides territorial information to analyse the interactions between agriculture, environment and countryside, such as irrigation and land . The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) works on land cover and land use in its Global Land Cover Network (GLCN)7 initiative, with the objective of improving the availability of global information on land cover and its dynamics and harmonizing land cover .
