The GlobCover initiative of ESA developed and demonstrated a service for the generation of global land cover maps, based on Envisat MERIS Fine Resolution (300 m) mode data. ESA and Université catholique de Louvain demonstrated the possibility to use the GlobCover system operationally by delivering GlobCover 2009, the 2009 global land cover map, within a year of the last satellite acquisition. For maximum user benefit the thematic legend of GlobCover is compatible with the UN Land Cover Classification System (LCCS). The system is based on an automatic pre-processing and classification chain. Finally, the global land cover map was validated by an international group of land cover experts and the validation reports are also available to the user community. Should you write any scientific publication on the results of research activities that use GlobCover products as input, you shall acknowledge the ESA GlobCover 2009 Project in the text of the publication and provide ESA with an electronic copy of the publication. If you wish to use the GlobCover 2009 products in advertising or in any commercial promotion, you shall acknowledge the ESA GlobCover 2009 Project and you must submit the layout to ESA for approval beforehand (due@esa.int).
