Prototype 20m high resolution land cover data set of Africa

The ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Land Cover team have developed a map based on 1 year of Sentinel-2A observations from December 2015 to December 2016. The main objective of the 'S2 prototype LC map at 20m of Africa 2016' release is to collect users' feedback for further improvements. The map comprises 180 000 Sentinel-2A images representing 90 terabytes captured between December 2015 and December 2016. Considering the size of the map – about six gigabytes – a web interface was developed to visualise the data. To view and download the map:
