Are you looking for an easy to get and free of charge clutter? ICS telecom/ICS designer/ICS LT make it possible in one click!

It is now possible to generate the ground occupancy layer in any ICS tool from Corine Land Cover and Open Street Map sources, regardless of resolution and cartographic projection of your project. You just have to download free Corine Land Cover and Open Street Map data directly from CLC and OSM import interface in ICS tool. This will allow to obtain quickly and easily a 16 classes clutter file for Europe and a 8 classes worldwide one compatible with your DTM in ICS software.

The Corine Land Cover Data (CLC) cover whole Europe and Turkey.
The Open Street Map (OSM) data cover the whole world.

Contact us for more information.
