New 2020 Global Land Cover Map

ESRI has released a new 2020 Global Land Cover Map Service in ArcGIS Online, part of their Living Atlas datasets.

The map was built using European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel-2 satellite imagery, and developed using a new machine learning workflow. The 2020 land surface data is at 10-meter resolution and includes categories such as water, trees, grass, flooded vegetation, crops, scrub/shrub, built area, bare ground, and snow/ice. There is also a cloud and no data category. Check it out!
