EASE-Grid 2.0 Land Cover Classifications Derived from Boston University MODIS/Terra Land Cover Data, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    These data provide land cover classifications derived from the Boston University MOD12Q1 V004 MODIS/Terra 1 km Land Cover Product (Friedl et al. 2002). The data are available in various EASE-Grid 2.0 azimuthal and global projections, in multiple spatial resolutions ranging from 3 km to 100 km. The data are in flat binary, 1 byte files that are stored by row.
