Successful development of a prototype high resolution LC map at 20m over Africa based on 1 year of Sentinel-2A observations from December 2015 to December 2016.

The main objective of the 'S2 Prototype Land Cover 20m map of Africa 2016' release is to collect users feedback to improve the next generation of HR Land Cover products and drive the R&D activities to achieve that objective.

The 'CCI-LC - S2 Prototype LC 20m Map over Africa 2016' can be visualised and freely downloaded from http://2016africalandcover20m.esrin.esa.int/. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
