At the beginning of the 2000's Regione Lombardia and ERSAF began a cartographic survey program addressing small-scale land cover and usage.

The need to represent some local peculiarities has led to the introduction of two additional levels (IV and V), which describe the characteristic features of the Lombardy region. During the past years the program has become well established and has led to the creation of the layers relative to five di erent historical moments: 1954/1955, 1980 (data of less detail), 1999, 2007, and 2012.
