Updating land cover maps satellite images

It is a 5 year programme that will implement its activities in the period 2012-2016.The land cover mapping is planned to be completed in the first 3 years of the project.Our land cover data over many urban areas has improved dramatically.With algorithmic recognition of parks, small water bodies, and other designations between the natural and built environment, your applications will have improved user experience at every step.Abstract: Having updated spatial data from natural resources is essential for their integrated management.Latest available related data in our country, are land cover maps, (produced by FRWO) and range type maps (produced by RIFR) which are published gradually till 2004, emphasizing on fieldwork.Surveying the 8 sheets of 0000 maps (12 million ha) which are situated in the central part of Iran, has been given to Yekom consulting engineers.

By doing a complementary fieldwork, as a final check probable mistakes and uncertainties had remedied.

Updated land cover datasets are essential for many applications concerning sustainable management of natural resources, environmental protection, food security, etc..

The land cover mapping of Ethiopia is an ongoing activity which is being carried on through three consecutive projects: The SFSIS project paved the way for improving the accuracy of the Central Statistical Agency (CSA) sample-based estimation of crop areas.

Mapbox Vector Terrain, our global elevation and landcover tiles whose data drives maps like Outdoors, is getting a resolution bump as we use our declouded satellite imagery to improve land cover designations worldwide.

With a clear view of the ground and the 11 bands that Landsat 8 has to work with, we’re able to identify unique land cover classes ranging from slight vegetation changes to more dramatic differences between the built and natural environments.
