Production of a land cover map of Central Africa derived from SPOT4 – VGT Data

Context and objectives

METAFRO, the information system of the Royal Museum for Central Africa, is interested in the creation (and possibly the yearly update) of a medium resolution land cover map of the Central African region. The product should also be available in vector format, because it has to serve as background base map for the execution of geographical queries on the meta-database of the METAFRO project.

The required land cover map will be produced at l km² resolution, based on a full year of NDVI-syntheses (36 consecutive 10-day composites), provided by SPOT4-VEGETATION. The proposed methodology has already been implemented with success on similar data sets of NOAA-AVHRR.
