MOD 12 - Land Cover/Land Cover Change

Description:
The MODIS global land cover product (MOD12) consists of two suites of scientific data sets (SDS): MOD12Q1 (global land cover), and MOD12Q2 (global land cover dy-namics). The MOD12Q1 SDS suite includes five layers depicting different global land cover classifications. The MOD12Q2 SDS suite provides seven layers that characterize seasonal time scale dynamics in ecosystems at global scale. In collec-tion 5, both are being produced at a spatial resolution of 500-m at annual and bi-annual time-steps for MOD12Q1 and MOD12Q2, respectively.
