Land Cover (2018)
Very-high resolution land cover classification (3-meter resolution) in central India from February – March 2018. The coverage region is broken into 233 study area zones. Each zone has a corresponding land cover classification tile.
The land cover classification (class 1: water, class 2: tree, class 3 and 5: cropland, class 4: bare ground, class 6: built environment) was performed using a Random Forest classifier in Google Earth Engine on Planet Labs PlanetScope imagery.
