Benchmark dataset containing slope, elevation, Landsat temporal composites and night light raster layers, and the training samples (LUCAS and CORINE samples compilation) to map the land-cover in different areas of the European Union-EU.

The slope and elevation refers to Digital Terrain Model for Continental Europe, and the night light images are from VNP46A1 product (VIIRS/NPP Daily Gridded Day Night Band 500m). The temporal composites were based on GLAD Landsat ARD, considering the 4 seasons and 3 percentiles per season (25, 50 and 75), for 6 spectral (blue, green, red, NIR, SWIR1, SWIR2) and 1 thermal band, resulting at end in 88 Landsat composites per year. The images for each season were selected using the same calendar dates for all period:

  • Winter: December 2 of previous year until March 20 of current year
  • Spring: March 21 until June 24 of current year
  • Summer: June 25 until September 12 of current year
  • Fall: September 13 until December 1 of current year

The benchmark areas were selected according to the EU tiling system, which consists of 7,042 regular tiles with 30 x 30 km. The dataset uses the ETRS89-extended / LAEA Europe as spatial reference system (EPSG:3035), and all the raster layers have 1,000 x 1,000 pixels and 30m of spatial resolution.

For all the EU the training samples will have 32 land-cover classes, varying according to the benchmark area:

  • 111: Urban fabric
  • 122: Road and rail networks and associated land
  • 123: Port areas
  • 124: Airports
  • 131: Mineral extraction sites
  • 132: Dump sites
  • 133: Construction sites
  • 211: Non-irrigated arable land
  • 212: Permanently irrigated arable land
  • 213: Rice fields
  • 221: Vineyards
  • 222: Fruit trees and berry plantations
  • 223: Olive groves
  • 231: Pastures
  • 311: Broad-leaved forest
  • 312: Coniferous forest
  • 321: Natural grasslands
  • 322: Moors and heathland
  • 323: Sclerophyllous vegetation
  • 324: Transitional woodland-shrub
  • 331: Beaches, dunes, sands
  • 332: Bare rocks
  • 333: Sparsely vegetated areas
  • 334: Burnt areas
  • 335: Glaciers and perpetual snow
  • 411: Inland wetlands
  • 421: Maritime wetlands
  • 511: Water courses
  • 512: Water bodies
  • 521: Coastal lagoons
  • 522: Estuaries
  • 523: Sea and ocean
