Land Cover Data

Land Cover Classification and Mapping - Methods

Land Cover Metadata and Data Download Data Why two different land covers
The land cover was continually evolving, so version numbers were assigned to each new set of modifications. For each new version, the vertebrate models had to be rerun, a process that was very time-consuming. The last version of the vertebrate models was run on Version 5 of the land cover, but a few changes were made to the land cover after the last vertebrate models were run.
