Hello I'm looking for the latest Corine Data Set and I found this page:[…]-seamless-vector-database-4

However this page has each land cover type in a separate shape file. I'm looking for an integrated data set in a single file. Is such a thing available and if so can anyone point to where it may be downloaded ?

Hi Daniel,

we didn’t create a shape file with all the class from the beginning due to the format limitations: the dbf file can’t be big enough to store such amount of data.

However, I created a file with all the classes in in spatialite format:[…]-seamless-vector-database-4 (link is towards the bottom of the page)
Corine 2006 shortly follow later.

If you are not interested in using the file in Spatial Lite format, you can use the ogr2ogr utility (freeware and opensource) to "translate" it in a format more convenient to you:

Hope this will help.
