MCD12Q1.006 MODIS Land Cover Type Yearly Global 500m (MODIS/006/MCD12Q1)

Version V006

The MCD12Q1 V6 product provides global land cover types at yearly intervals
(2001-2016) derived from six different classification schemes. It is derived
using supervised classifications of MODIS Terra and Aqua reflectance data.
The supervised classifications then undergo additional post-processing that
incorporate prior knowledge and ancillary information to further refine
specific classes.

LC_Type1Land Cover Type 1: Annual International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP) classification
LC_Type2Land Cover Type 2: Annual University of Maryland (UMD) classification
LC_Type3Land Cover Type 3: Annual Leaf Area Index (LAI) classification
LC_Type4Land Cover Type 4: Annual BIOME-Biogeochemical Cycles (BGC) classification
