1 Km Resolution Land Cover Map of Canada
Entry ID: CANEMRCCRSMANCANMAP


Summary
Abstract: Thirteen land cover classes are covered using 1 km resolution data.

The land cover classes include; mixedwood forest, deciduous forest, water
bodies and rivers, transitional forest, coniferous forest, arctic/alpine
tundra, barren lands, perennial snow or ice, agricultural cropland, rangeland
and pasture, built-up areas, United States of America and Greenland, boundary
lines of provinces and territories and permanent polar ice.

The Canada map is at a scale of 1:6,500,000. Each provincial map is
available at 1:1,000,000 and 1:2,000,000 scale.Data is used for global change
research and mapping.
