ESA Global Land Cover Map Available Online

  • Rating12345

PR – ESA’s global land cover map, which is ten times sharper than any
previous global satellite map, is now available to the public online
from the GlobCover website. It is the highest resolution land cover map
that has been completely validated ever released.


Sixteen
experts validated the map using more than 3 000 reference land cover
points and showed it had an overall accuracy of 73% weighted by area
for its 22 land cover classes. The map’s legend was developed using the
United Nation Food and Agriculture Organisation’s (FAO) Land Cover
Classification System (LCCS).
