Abstract From the Africa land cover map, which is a regional component of the GLC2000 exercise, conceived and coordinated by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre. The GLC2000 maps are based on daily observations made from 1st November 1999 to 31st December 2000 by the VEGETATION sensor on the SPOT 4 satellite. The map shows specific land-cover features as the irrigated agriculture, the ribbons of secondary forest of the swamp forests at a spatial detail never achieved before.
