In this study, the CORINE land use map for protection zones was produced for Egirdir Lake around. For this purpose, SPOT-4 satellite data was classified by supervised classification method, the classification map was checked in three plots, and CORINE land use map was produced. The map was divided into zones by considering the distance (300-1000-2000-5000 meter) from the coastal line of the lake and then the individual zones were examined. In addition this map was compared the map of CORINE 2006. As a result, it was determined that the most common land use type was sclerophyllous vegetation, and the rarest land use type was mineral extraction sites. In addition, the urban areas were located on the critical region of the lake's watershed. As the CORINE map of the study area was compared to that of CORINE 2006 map, there is a need for CORINE 2006 map of Turkey to be updated.
