First global land cover maps from the global component of the Copernicus Land Service, derived from PROBA-V satellite observations.
Collection 2 refers to the first global maps, in 100m spatial resolution grid (collection 1 was a demonstration over Africa). 
First epoch is year 2015. More years and maps of changes between years are expected to be added.
The maps include the main discrete classification (23 classes aligned with UN-FAO's LCCS), a set of cover fractions (%) for the 10 main classes and additional quality layers.
