Landcover data: MODIS/Terra+Aqua Land Cover Dynamics Yearly L3 Global 500m (MCD12Q2 V006)

The MODIS/Terra+Aqua Land Cover Type Yearly L3 Global 500m SIN Grid V006 (MCD12Q1_006), 500 m were downloaded from NASA USGS website (https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/news/release-modis-version-6-land-cover-dynamics-data-product/). This global product has a 500 m resolution. In the GRIP-E project only the data images of 2016 have been used for the initial land cover parametrization. The region of interest (Great Lakes) is cropped and data converted into formats ASCII and NetCDF. Data are then made available to the project collaborators on a private GitHub. Researchers interested in data can email Juliane Mai (University of Waterloo; juliane.mai@uwaterloo.ca)
