Short summary
We mapped the distribution of cropland and permanent grassland across Switzerland, where the agricultural land is considerably spatially heterogeneous due to strong variability in topography and climate, thus presenting challenges to mapping. The resulting map has high accuracy in lowlands as well as in mountainous areas. Thus, we believe that the presented mapping approach and resulting map will provide a solid ground for further research in agricultural land cover and landscape structure.
