land cover maps


GIS Data

This global land-cover map was created using data from the Envisat mission for the 2010 epoch (2008–12). This is the most recent data product from 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.
