MODIS 1km Landcover Classification
Entry ID: USDA_FAS_MODIS_1KM


Summary
Abstract: The Land Cover Classification product, MOD12Q1, identifies 17 classes of land
cover in the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP) global
vegetation classification scheme. This scheme includes 11 natural vegetation
classes, 3 developed land classes, one of which is a mosaic with natural
vegetation, permanent snow or ice, barren or sparsely vegetated, and water.
Additional Science Data Set layers for other classification schemes include the
University of Maryland modification of the IGBP scheme, the MODIS LAI/fPAR
(MOD15) scheme, and the MODIS Net Primary Production (MOD17) scheme. These
classes are distinguished with a supervised decision tree classification
method.
