Summary
Abstract: This version of the product was decommissioned on July 24, 2013.

The Land Cover Type Yearly Climate Modeling Grid (CMG) is a lower spatial resolution (0.05°) product, which provides the dominant land cover type and also the sub-grid frequency distribution of land cover classes. The CMG product (Short name: MCD12C1) is derived using the same algorithm that produces the Global 500 m Land Cover Type ... View entire text
