Global Food Security Support Analysis Data (GFSAD) Crop Dominance 2010 Global 1 km V001

Version 001
  • Abstract
    The NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Global Food Security Support Analysis Data (GFSAD) Crop Dominance Global 1 kilometer (km) dataset was created using multiple input data including: Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), Satellite Probatoire d'Observation de la Terre (SPOT) vegetation, and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) remote sensing data; crop type data, secondary elevation data; 50-year precipitation and 20-year temperature data; reference sub-meter to 5-meter resolution ground data; and country statistic data. The GFSAD1KCD data were produced for nominal 2010 by overlaying the five dominant crops of the world produced by Ramankutty et al. (2008), Monfreda et al. (2008), and Portman et al. (2009) over the remote sensing derived global irrigated and rainfed cropland area map of the International Water Management Institute (IWMI; Thenkabail et al., 2009a, 2009b, 2011, Biradar et al., 2009) to ultimately create eight classes of crop dominance. The GFSAD1KCD nominal 2010 product is based on data ranging from years 2007 through 2012.
