30 years time series of Global LAI, FAPAR, FCover now available

Geoland2

The Core Mapping Service BioPar of the geoland2 project announces the availability of 30 years time series of global LAI, FAPAR and FCover made of:

  • from 1981 to 2000, LAI, FAPAR and FCover are derived from NOAA/AVHRR Long Term Data Record (LTRD) dataset provided by NASA and the University of Maryland. They cover the globe at 0.05° resolution.
  • from 1999 to the present, LAI, FAPAR and FCover are derived from SPOT/VGT data at 1km resolution.

The innovative methodology set-up by INRA allows that both datasets are fully compatible. The NOAA/AVHRR products have been generated by CNES, and the SPOT/VGT products are produced by VITO.

All these products can be discovered and ordered freely through the geoland2 web portal following the link http://www.geoland2.eu/core-mapping-services/biopar.html. The Algorithmic Theoretical Basis Documents, and the Product User Manuals are also available. It is also possible to subscribe to receive the future products (from SPOT/VGT) as soon as they are generated (http://www.geoland2.eu/portal/system/subscription.html).

They were all developed in the framework of the FP7/geoland2 project (http://www.gmes-geoland.info), the precursor project of the GMES Land service.
