Land Cover (2018)

Data Description:

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.

The landcover tiles can be downloaded from the link below and study area zones can be downloaded directly as a zip file.
