Land cover classifications are now published on the CDS Catalogue

Global maps of land cover classifications are now available to download trough the C3S CDS Catalogue at:!/dataset/satellite-land-cover?tab=overview

This dataset’s long-term consistency, yearly updates, and high thematic detail on a global scale have made it attractive for a multitude of applications such as land accounting, forest monitoring and desertification, in addition to scientific research.

In order to ensure continuity, these land cover maps are consistent with the series of global annual land cover maps from the 1990s to 2015 produced by the European Space Agency (ESA) Climate Change Initiative (CCI).
