Land_cover_2010

The European Climate Change Initiative released a global land cover map with 22 different types of land cover classes derived from the Envistat mission for the time period 2008-2012.

The European Space Agency (ESA) recently released the latest global land-cover map, created using data from the Envisat mission for the 2010 epoch (2008–12). The data product is produced by the Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Land Cover team led by the Université catholique de Louvain, showing 22 different types of global land cover classes, plus 14 regional land cover classes.

The CCI Land Cover product is part of the larger Global Climate Observing System plan to make the best use of available satellite sensor data to provide an accurate land-cover classification that can serve the climate modeling community. The maps conform to the FAO/UNEP Land Cover Classification System to be compatible with previous products.

The land-cover maps are currently under validation by regional experts coordinated by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre.
