The Globcover initiative comprises the development and demonstration of a service that in first instance produces a Global land cover map for year 2005/2006. Globcover uses MERIS fine resolution (300m) mode data acquired between mid 2005 and mid 2006 and, for maximum user benefit, the thematic legend is compatible with the UN Land Cover Classification(More)

— In the frame of the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security programme (GMES) jointly implemented by ESA and EC, ESA is developing the Sentinel-2 system, providing globally with systematic acquisition high resolution (10-20 m) optical observations with a high revisit tailored towards the needs of operational land services. This system will ensure(More)

The GLOBCOVER project delivers a global land cover map at 300 m spatial resolution using MERIS FRS data acquired during the 19 months period from December 2004 until June 2006. As multiple single orbits has to be combined in one single dataset. Therefore, we need to assess the relative and absolute geolocation of MERIS projected products. We describe(More)
The GlobCover project has developed a service dedicated to the generation of multi-year global land cover maps at 300 meter spatial resolution using as its main source of data the Full Resolution full Swath (300m) data (FRS) acquired by the MERIS sensor on-board the ENVISAT satellite. As multiple single daily orbits have to be combined in one single(More)
