|The Global Land Cover Test Sites (GLCTS) project is developing a multitemporal dataset of satellite imagery for
a globally distributed set of test sites. This dataset will provide a resource for research on land cover
characterization and the testing of algorithms for NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS). The selected test
sites will represent a wide range of land cover types and will be well characterized on the ground, have ongoing
field-based observation programs, and of be interest to the international global change research community.
GLCTS development is being coordinated with a number of affiliated organizations (see other WWW links below).|
It is currently proposed that between 40 to 80 sites be developed for broad land cover representation. The
initial site selection process has identified a set of established and emerging long-term monitoring sites where
there is in-situ expertise and infrastructure to facilitate research. Candidate sites under consideration are
displayed on the map below.
