Collection Maps

From Landsat images mosaics generated, the classifications are realized that result in land cover and use maps for each year. Within the logic proposed by MapBiomas the maps will be updated every time that there is an improvement in the classification algorithms. The classification methodology is dynamic, with the aim of improving the classification of each cover type.

Here you can access the annual maps of land use and cover of the Gran Chaco Americano organized by country, letter (1: 250,000) and by year.

Important: when composing a single mosaic or calculating statistics on maps, the following should be taken into account:

  • For area calculation it is necessary to use an adequate metric projection.
  • All data is in the GeoTiff format and has LZW compression.
  • To obtain the reference of the codes with the classes, access the following LINK.
  • To download the collection access the script*: Google - Code Earth Engine

*To use this tool you must have an account in Google Earth Engine (free).
