Definition: Geocoded statistics
Land Use/Land Cover
In general all statistics are somehow geocoded meaning that they are referred to a regional reference system using alphanumerical codes of areas or locations (e.g. names, numbers): National Data refer to a whole country, regional data refer to smaller areas (mostly administrative regions, like the European NUTS regions, divided in 3 levels).
