GFSAD1000: Cropland Extent 1km Multi-Study Crop Mask, Global Food-Support Analysis Data (USGS/GFSAD1000_V1)

Version V1

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, V0.1 provides the spatial distrubution of a
disaggregated five-class global cropland extent map derived from four
major studies: Thenkabail et al. (2009a, 2011), Pittman et al. (2010),
Yu et al. (2013), and Friedl et al. (2010). V1.0 is a 5-class product that
provides information on global cropland extent and irrigated versus rainfed
cropping. There is no crop type or crop type dominance information. Cropping
intensity (single, double, triple, and continuous crops) can be obtained for
every pixel using time-series remote sensing data.
