SAFARI 2000 Land Cover from AVHRR, 1-Deg, 1987 (Defries and Townshend)

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The UMD 1-degree Global Land Cover product was produced by researchers at the Laboratory for Global Remote Sensing Studies (LGRSS) at UMD. The product is based on Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) maximum monthly composites for 1987 of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) values at approximately 8-km resolution, averaged to one-by-one degree resolution. This coarse-resolution data set was used as the basis for a supervised classification of eleven cover types that broadly represent the major biomes of the world.
