  • Global Land Systems

    Global Land System Classification Current global scale land-change models used for integrated assessments and climate modeling are based on classifications of land cover, often using a resolution of 0.5 degree (approximately 50 x 50 km at the equator). To improve such assessments we have developed a new global representation of land cover and land use, at...
  • Land Cover and Land Use Indicators. Review of available data

    This OECD-report by SPINlab | VU-researchers Vasco Diogo and Eric Koomen identifies opportunities to refine OECD’s indicators of land cover and land use and their regular production for all OECD and G20 countries. A comprehensive review is conducted of the available datasets at the global, regional and national levels, including data derived from remote...
  • Land cover of the World

    The USGS and other agencies and organizations have produced land cover data to meet a wide variety of spatial needs. The USGS LCI has been established to provide access to, and scientific and technical support for, the application of these land cover data. By choosing a continent you can view a list of land cover links.
  • Global land cover map

    The GlobCover Portal provides access to the results of the GlobCover project. GlobCover is an ESA initiative which began in 2005 in partnership with JRC, EEA, FAO, UNEP, GOFC-GOLD and IGBP. The aim of the project was to develop a service capable of delivering global composites and land cover maps using as input observations from the 300m MERIS sensor on...
  • Land cover United States

    National Land Cover Database 2006 (NLCD 2006) is a 16-class land cover classification scheme that has been applied consistently across the conterminous United States at a spatial resolution of 30 meters. NLCD 2006 is based primarily on a decision-tree classification of circa 2006 Landsat satellite data. NLCD 2006 also quantifies land cover change between...
