Develop robust methodologies for both fine and coarse resolution LC mapping. • To produce national land cover maps over the period 1993-2001 using coarse satellite data. • To develop validation methods for coarse products based on fine resolution satellite data and other information sources. • To prepare a national wetlands data base. • To derive higher level products and statistical summaries to support studies of surface-atmosphere interactions and the role of land cover in carbon and hydrological cycles.
