LAND COVER MAPBIOMAS 10m
The MapBiomas 10 meters BETA Collection includes land use and land cover (LULC) annual maps from 2016 to 2022 (the period available for Sentinel-2 satellite images).
This BETA collection is a first approximation that used a similar method and the same legend as the LULC classes of MapBiomas Collection 7 (up to legend level 3), but classifies Sentinel-2 satellite images with a spatial resolution of 10m. Improvements will be implemented in the next collections as this product will be in constant development.
The annual maps are in BETA version and still have a number of limitations, that should be used with caution, especially concerning the detailing of farming and the comparison between years and other products with different spatial resolutions. Even though, better resolution images allows more detailed information, for example, riparian forest in Permanent Preservation Areas (APP) along rivers and springs.
The smaller time series (from 2016 to 2022) and being a BETA collection decrease the temporal consistency of the Sentinel-2 mapping compared to the longer time series of Landsat mapping and Collection 7.1.
