  • The Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS) is a reference database of the agriculture parcels used as a basis for area related payments to farmers in relation to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). These payments are (co)financed by the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (‘EAGF’) and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (‘EAFRD’). To ensure that payments are regular, the CAP relies on the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS), a set of comprehensive administrative and on the spot checks on subsidy applications, which is managed by the Member States. The Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS) is a key component of the IACS. It is an IT system based on ortho imagery (aerial or satellite photographs) which records all agricultural parcels in the Member States. It serves two main purposes: to clearly locate all eligible agricultural land contained within reference parcels and to calculate their maximum eligible area (MEA). The LPIS is used for cross checking during the administrative control procedures and as a basis for on the spot checks by the paying agency.

  • Landscape features on the reference parcels (LPIS). The landscape features layer is one of the Ecological Focus Areas (EFA) layers with serves to attribute landscape features to land parcels declared in the geospatial aid application GSAA. These areas are taken into account in the framework of the Greening scheme [Article 46 of Regulation (EU) No 1307/2013] and Agri-Environment-Climate-Measures (AECM) [Article 28 of Regulation (EU) No 1305/2013]. Ecological Focus Areas (EFA) are areas designated to bring about benefits for the environment, improve biodiversity and maintain attractive landscapes. EFAs may include landscape features, buffer strips, catch crops, fallow land, areas with nitrogen fixing crops etc. The landscape features layer is part of the Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS).

  • 6-meter strips in the LPIS reference parcels along forest edges. The forest edges layer is one of the Ecological Focus Areas (EFA) layers with serves to attribute forest edges to land parcels declared in the geospatial aid application GSAA.

  • The boundaries, areas and land use as declared in the Geospatial Aid applications (GSAA) submitted in 2019. A Geospatial Aid application (GSAA) is a pre established aid application form and the corresponding graphic material for farmers, provided through a computerised geographical information based interface as referred to Article 72(3) of Regulation (EU) No 1306/2013 and Article 17 of Regulation (EU) n° 809/2014, which is used for processing spatial and alphanumerical data on areas declared in relation to the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). GSAA is a component of the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS), a set of comprehensive administrative and on the spot checks on subsidy applications, which is managed by the Member States. GSAA covers area related supports as income support and to reward efforts in environment and climate protection [financed by the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (‘EAGF’) and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (‘EAFRD’)].

  • The Permanent Grassland layer shows for agricultural parcels, if, based on the farmers’ declaration in preceding years, an area is to be considered as permanent grassland or arable land. If the number of years of green cover is 5 or less, the parcel is considered as arable land. If the number is 6 or more, the parcel is considered as permanent grassland. Attention: If the number of years of green cover is 5 and the parcel is used as grassland in the current year, the parcel becomes permanent grassland in that year. The Permanent Grassland layer, in conjunction with the land use declared in a claim year, allows to classify parcels as permanent grassland or arable land for that given year. This information is required to manage and control by cross checks certain area aid schemes. The Permanent Grassland layer is therefore to be considered as an element of the Integrated Administration and Control System (IACS), a set of comprehensive administrative and on the spot checks on subsidy applications, which is managed by the Member States.
