GFSAD1000: Cropland Extent 1km Crop Dominance, Global Food-Support Analysis Data (USGS/GFSAD1000_V0)

Version V0.0

The GFSAD is a NASA-funded project to provide high-resolution global
cropland data and their water use that contributes towards global food
security in the twenty-first century. The GFSAD products are derived
through multi-sensor remote sensing data (e.g., Landsat, MODIS, AVHRR),
secondary data, and field-plot data and aims at documenting cropland

At a nominal 1km scale, V0.0 provides the spatial distribution of the
five major global cropland types (wheat, rice, corn, barley, and soybeans)
which occupy 60% of all global cropland areas. The map is produced by
overlaying these crops over the remote sensing derived global irrigated and
rainfed cropland area map of the International Water Management Institute.
V0.0 an 8-class product that provides information on global: cropland
extent, crop dominance, irrigated versus rainfed cropping, and cropping
intensity (single, double, triple, and continuous crops).
