LP DAAC Releases Global Land Cover Mapping and Estimation (GLanCE) Data Product

Nov 03, 2022

The LP DAAC is pleased to announce the availability of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Global Land Cover Mapping and Estimation (GLanCE) data product.

The purpose of GLanCE is to provide 30 meter (m) global land cover and land cover change data for the period 2001 to 2019. The GLanCE datasets are useful for a wide range of applications, including ecosystem, climate, and hydrologic modeling; monitoring the response of terrestrial ecosystems to climate change; carbon accounting; and land management.

Currently, the GLanCE data product contains coverage over North America. Coverage for additional continents will be delivered in the coming months. The LP DAAC will announce those data as they become available.

A citation containing the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for the GLanCE dataset is provided below.
