The Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) at Natural Resources Canada produced this new high-resolution dataset of Canada’s 15 land cover classes from 13,350 Landsat-7 satellite images taken between 2009 and 2011 for cloud- and snow-free national coverage. The 30-metre resolution of the dataset will help improve the accuracy of local and regional-scale analyses and applications.
