Products for general public

  • Maps of cover and land use. They are maps in matrix or raster format (30 m pixel). The legend of the maps and the period covered may vary between collections.
  • Mosaics of satellite images for each year of the historical series with a maximum spatial resolution of 30 m formed by the composition of the representative pixels of each set of images of a place in a certain period of time (e.g., filtering the clouds). Three periods were considered for the generation of the mosaics: 1) annual compound (from January 1 to December 31), 2) wet season (considering dates with NDVI values ​​greater than the 50th percentile), 3) dry season (considering dates) with NDVI values ​​lower than the 50th percentile). The mosaics contain 86 layers of information consisting of 7 bands of the Landsat images and 79 spectral index calculated from them. The tiles can be viewed directly in Google Earth Engine.
