CCI Land Cover: Prototype high-resolution Land Cover map of Africa released

The first high-resolution (20 m per pixel) land cover map (prototype), classifying land cover types on the entire continent of Africa, has been released by the ESA Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Land Cover project. This is a prototype map, created using a year's worth of data from Sentinel-2a, allows for the exploration of Africa's diverse landscapes in detail. User feedback is requested on the use of the dataset.
