Land cover mapping at coarse spatial
resolution provides key information needed for scientific analyses, resource
management and policy development at regional, continental and global level.
There are many global/continental or large area land cover mapping project, and
the latest land cover map will be produced on each occasion of new-sensor-data
distribution. Ground truth data are indispensable to map the land cover,
however, there is no steady way for the producers to use the other projects’
land cover map as the ground truth data.
