Abstract:

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre and the Russian Academy of Science's Centre for Forest Ecology and Productivity have produced a new 1 km spatial resolution land cover map of Eurasia from 1999 SPOT4-VEGETATION data. The legend is designed to serve users from science programmes, policy makers, environmental convention secretariats, non-governmental organizations, development-aid projects and the national forest service. The 1999 map is also being updated as part of an international exercise to map Global Land Cover for the year 2000. This Letter describes the map legend, the image classification method, the map accuracy assessment process and presents the land cover map.
