Near real time epoch 2019 from the Collection 3 of annual, global 100m land cover maps.
Produced by the global component of the Copernicus Land Service, derived from PROBA-V satellite observations and ancillary datasets.
The maps include:
- a main discrete classification with 23 classes aligned with UN-FAO's Land Cover Classification System,
- a set of versatile cover fractions: percentage (%) of ground cover for the 10 main classes
- a forest type layer
- quality layers on input data density and on the confidence of the detected land cover change
