  2. 8 km Global Land Cover Data Set Derived from AVHRR

The University of Maryland Department of Geography generated this global land cover classification collection in 1998. Imagery from the AVHRR satellites acquired between 1981 and 1994 were analyzed to distinguish fourteen land cover classes. This product is available at three spatial scales: 1 degree, 8 kilometer and 1 kilometer pixel resolutions.
