Dar Es Salaam Very-High-Resolution Land Cover Map
This is a very-high-resolution land cover map of Dar es Salaam derived from satellite imagery (Pleiades, 0.5m resolution). The majority of the area is classified from a 2016 (July) image while a small part of it from two images collected in January and March 2018, respectively.
The pixel values related to the following legend:
3=artificial ground surface
113=high elevated buildings
112=medium elevated buildings
111=low elevated buildings
The Out of Bag error of the product is 6,38% with the following class errors:
Building = 0.035826
Water = 0.049934
Artificial Ground Surface = 0.077108
Low Vegetation = 0.108709
Tall Vegetation = 0.062278
Bare Ground = 0.13803
Shadow = 0.019872
