Global monitoring system for livestock and grasslands / pastures

LAPIG is involved in two mapping initiatives (MapBiomas and Global Pasture Watch) using Landsat data, producing 30-m annual maps, which could be downscaled using Sentinel-2 data to 10-m. OEMC project aims to produce recurrent 30-m mapping products for grasslands / pasture areas and livestock from 2000 onward to support the Land & Carbon Lab initiative, seeking to contribute for a better understanding of land use conversion, food production, climate change and land productivity at global scale. All produced EO data and training samples will be open data allowing further refinements for the mapping products at national and local scales by user communities.


Further details about this use case will be available shortly.
