India Annual Winter Cropped Area, 2001-2016
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_INDIA_AWCA_1.0


Summary
Abstract: India Annual Winter Cropped Area, 2001 - 2016 consists of annual winter cropped areas for most of India (except the Northeastern states) from 2000-2001 to 2015-2016. This data set utilizes the NASA Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI; spatial resolution: 250m) for the winter growing season (October-March). The methodology uses an automated algorithm ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide data that can be used in land cover and land use change (LCLUC) studies, agricultural applications, and to assist with policy-making in regards to sustainable agricultural intensification.
