Historical land-cover changes and land-use conversions global data set by Meiyappan and Jain
Years of Record: 1800/01 to 2010/12
A set of three estimates of land-cover types and annual transformations of land use are provided on a global 0.5°x0.5° grid at annual timesteps. The longest of the three estimates spans 1770-2010. The three estimates use three different data sets of cropland and pastureland. Common input data...
