Product Description

Sample Land Ecosystem Classification Image The One-Minute Land Ecosystem Classification Product is a global (static map) data set of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP) classification scheme stored on an equal-angle rectangular grid at 1-minute resolution. The dataset is generated from the official MODIS land ecosystem classification dataset, MOD12Q1 for year 2000, day 289 data (October 15, 2000).

This dataset is used in generating the spatially complete albedo maps and statistics, but is also a stand-alone product designed for use by the user community.


The One-Minute Land Ecosystem Classification Product is generated from the official MODIS Ecosystem product, MOD12Q1, by remapping the IGBP classification scheme from an Integerized Sinusoidal (ISIN) projection to equal-angle rectangular coordinates at 1-minute resolution (2 km at the equator, < 1 km at the pole). The MOD12Q1 Quality Assurance (QA) is then applied to the remapped data.
