The LP DAAC is pleased to announce the expansion of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Global Land Cover Mapping and Estimation (GLanCE) data product with the inclusion of data for the South American continent.

The purpose of GLanCE is to provide 30 meter (m) global land cover and land cover change data for the period 2001 to 2019. The GLanCE datasets are designed to be useful for a wide range of applications, including ecosystem, climate, and hydrologic modeling; monitoring the response of terrestrial ecosystems to climate change; carbon accounting; and land management.

The GLanCE data product now contains continental coverage over North America, South America, and Europe. Coverage for additional continents will be delivered in the coming months. The LP DAAC will announce those data as they become available.

A citation containing the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) for the GLanCE dataset is provided below.
