1. Iran land cover

The following Iran-wide land cover map was generated by processing Sentinel imagery within the Google Earth Engine Cloud platform. For this purpose, over 2,500 Sentinel-1 and over 11,000 Sentinel-2 images were processed to produce a single mosaic dataset for the year 2017. Then, a Random Forest classifier was trained by an immense amount of training samples for 13 classes to generate the Iran-wide land cover map. Finally, an object-based post-processing approach was performed to improve the quality of the final land cover map. This map can be downloaded from
