This is a simplification of Copernicus Global Land Service - Land Cover 100 m v.3 2015-2019, based on Proba-V imagery. The Prova-V classes have been mapped to the 6 Land Use categories defined by the IPCC. The mapping has been done following the recommendations from this paper on CCI-LC which shares many classes with Proba-V classification: https://maps.elie.ucl.ac.be/CCI/viewer/download/ESACCI-LC-Ph2-PUGv2_2.0.pdf

The Copernicus GLS Prova-B 100 m project delivers consistent global Land Cover maps at 100 m spatial resolution on an annual basis from 2015 to 2019.
