The Land Cover CCI Climate Research Data Package (CRDP) contains all data products that have been generated within the project:

  • A new time series of consistent global LC maps at 300 m spatial resolution on an annual basis from 1992 to 2015;
  • 1 user tool for sub-setting, re-projecting and re-sampling the products in a way which is suitable to each climate model.
  • The full archive of AVHRR HRPT 1 km surface reflectance 7-day composites from 1992 to 1999;
  • The full archive of SPOT-VGT 1 km surface reflectance 7-day composites from 1999 to 2012;
  • The full archive of MERIS surface reflectance 7-day composites from 2003 to 2011 (300 m and 1 km resolution);
  • A PROBA-V time series of surface reflectance 7-day composites from mid March 2014 to end 2015;
  • 1 static map of open water bodies including ENVISAT ASAR data;
  • 3 global land surface seasonality products characterizing the vegetation greenness, the snow and the burned areas dynamics.

March 2017 - Moving from 5y-epochs to annual LC maps

  • The CCI-LC project delivers a new time series of 24 consistent global LC maps at 300 m spatial resolution on an annual basis from 1992 to 2015;
