Global land cover products have been created for global environmental studies by several institutions and organizations. The Global Mapping Project coordinated by the International Steering Committee for Global Mapping (ISCGM) has been periodically producing global land cover datasets asone of the eight basic global datasets. It has produced a new fifteen-second (approximately 500 m resolution at the equator) global land cover dataset – GLCNMO2013 (or GLCNMO version 3). This paper describes the… 
Accuracy Assessment of GlobeLand30 2010 Land Cover over China Based on Geographically and Categorically Stratified Validation Sample Data
The methods for and results from the first country-wide and statistically based accuracy assessment of GlobeLand30 2010 land cover dataset over China indicate that Globe land cover circa 2010 in China quite accurately, although estimates of accuracy indicators were lower as expected.
Assessing a Prototype Database for Comprehensive Global Aquatic Land Cover Mapping
The effectiveness of using existing global datasets to develop a comprehensive and user-oriented GALC database is assessed and the overall results show some limitations of current datasets in comprehensive GALc mapping.
Land cover data of Upper Parana River Basin, South America, at high spatial resolution
Mapping and analyzing China’s wetlands using MODIS time series data
Gathering accurate information on wetland distribution and changes is of key importance for wetland management. However, wetland mapping using single-date imagery is challenging due to high seasonal
A Novel Workflow for Seasonal Wetland Identification Using Bi-Weekly Multiple Remote Sensing Data
Accurate wetland mapping is essential for their protection and management; however, it is difficult to accurately identify seasonal wetlands because of irregular rainfall and the potential lack of
Multi-decadal shoreline change in coastal natural world heritage sites – a global assessment
Natural World Heritage Sites (NWHS), which are of Outstanding Universal Value, are increasingly threatened by natural and anthropogenic pressures. This is especially true for coastal NWHS, which are
A review of land use/land cover change mapping in the China-Central Asia-West Asia economic corridor countries
ABSTRACT Large-scale projects, such as the construction of railways and highways, usually cause an extensive Land Use Land Cover Change (LULCC). The China-Central Asia-West Asia Economic Corridor
Analysis of the Impact of Positional Accuracy When Using a Single Pixel for Thematic Accuracy Assessment
This research showed that remote sensing applications should not employ a single-pixel as an assessment unit in the thematic accuracy assessment, due to the significant amount of thematic error caused by positional errors.
Thermal Land Surface Emissivity for Retrieving Land Surface Temperature from Himawari-8
Land surface emissivity (LSE) in the thermal infrared (TIR) is an essential parameter in the retrieving land surface temperature (LST) from space. This paper describes the LSE maps in three TIR bands
The roles of criteria, data and classification methods in designing land cover classification systems: evidence from existing land cover data sets
The analysis results show that phenology, coverage rate, vertical structure, and leaf type were the most frequently adopted criteria in the LCCSs of existing LCDSs, which provides insights for land cover mapping in large regions and the rational utilization ofLCDSs.
