CORINE Land Cover (CLC) inventory is part of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service. It is produced by the majority of countries by visual interpretation of high-resolution satellite imagery. In a few countries semi-automatic solutions are applied, using national in-situ data, satellite image processing, GIS integration and generalization.
Evapotranspiration (ET) is the sum of water evaporation and transpiration from vegetation. The satellite data used to replace the standard evapotranspiration variable were derived from version 4 SSEBop Evapotranspiration product produced by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).
This dataset is produced with info from WorldPop (www.worldpop.org, School of Geography and Environmental Science, University of Southampton; Department of Geography and Geosciences, University of Louisville; Departement de Geographie, Universite de Namur) and Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), Columbia University.
HydroSHEDS is a mapping product that provides hydrographic information for regional and global-scale applications in a consistent format. It offers a suite of geo-referenced data sets at various scales, including river networks, watershed boundaries, drainage directions, and flow accumulations. HydroSHEDS is based on high-resolution elevation data obtained during a Space Shuttle flight for NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM).
- Sentinel-2 carries the Multi Spectral Instrument (MSI) sensor, which has the ability to capture spectral information in the visible, the red-edge, the infrared, and the short-wave infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. More information here.
- Landsat-8 uses the Operational Land Imager (OLI) which captures spectral information in the visible, the infrared, and the short-wave infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum (but not red-edge). More information here.
The detailed Large-Scale International Boundary Polygons dataset was used to extract the Sardinian coastline shapefile. More information here.
