The European Space Agency and the CCI High Resolution Land Cover project team invite interested researchers to participate to the Round Robin on High Resolution Land Cover mapping using Sentinel-1 (S-1) and Sentinel-2 (S-2) data.

The Round Robin refers to the land cover classification using a one-year data set of S-1 and S-2 data in three different regions, one in Siberia and two in the Amazon region. A more detailed description of the test areas, together with the land-cover maps already available at 300 m spatial resolution from the Medium Resolution Land Cover project can be found here.

Each interested researcher/team is asked to produce for each of the three regions a land cover map at 10m spatial resolution with a predefined minimum set of land cover classes.

The author/team of the maps selected on the basis of a rigorous quality assessment process by the validation group of the HR Land Cover project will be:

  • Announced and recognized in the ESA CCI web portal.
  • Invited to make a presentation and discuss their approach in a project meeting of the CCI HR Land Cover project.

Information about how to register, download the data and receive a more detailed description of the tasks requested to be part of this Round Robin are available here.
