LAND COVER

In hopes of resurrecting the 2000 and 2010 30-meter land cover from the National Geomatics Center of China, it’s gone missing in action.

These 30-meter resolution land cover maps show global distribution of 10 major land cover classes: water bodies, wetland, artificial surfaces, cultivated land, permanent snow and ice, forests, grasslands, shrubland, bare land and tundra.

It took over 10,000 Landsat satellite images to cover the entire Earth at 30 m resolution. This land cover uses pixel- and object-based methods and each class is identified in a prioritized sequence. At 8 selected areas, it achieves an overall classification accuracy of 80%.
