Data sets

30 m annual land cover and its dynamics in China from 1990 to 2019 (Version 1.0.0) Yang, J. and Huang, X.

High spatiotemporal resolution mapping of global urban change from 1985 to 2015 Y. Huang

Short summary
We produce the 30 m annual China land cover dataset (CLCD), with an accuracy reaching 79.31 %. Trends and patterns of land cover changes during 1985 and 2019 were revealed, such as expansion of impervious surface (+148.71 %) and water (+18.39 %), decrease in cropland (−4.85 %) and increase in forest (+4.34 %). The CLCD generally reflected the rapid urbanization and a series of ecological projects in China and revealed the anthropogenic implications on LC under the condition of climate change.
