MODIS/Terra Vegetation Continuous Fields Yearly L3 Global 250m SIN Grid V006

Version 006
  • Abstract
    The MOD44B Version 6 Vegetation Continuous Fields (VCF) product provides a representation of global, per pixel, surface vegetation cover estimates. Designed to continuously represent Earth’s terrestrial surface as a proportion of basic vegetation traits, the data provide a gradation of three surface cover components: percent tree cover, percent non-tree cover, and percent non-vegetated (bare). The three components are each stored in separate layers so they can be used independently to look at a particular type of ground cover or collectively to look at the entire surface. VCF products provide a continuous, quantitative portrayal of land surface cover at 250 meter pixel resolution, and hence, are widely used in environmental modeling and monitoring applications. Improvements/Changes from Previous Versions Collection 6 VCF was produced with the same code and training as the Collection 5 products, but improvements to the upstream inputs result in more accurate VCF products.
