Global Food Security-support Analysis Data (GFSAD) Cropland Extent 2015 Australia, New Zealand, China, Mongolia 30 m V001

The NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Global Food Security-support Analysis Data (GFSAD) data product provides cropland extent data over Australia, New Zealand, China, and Mongolia for nominal year 2015 at 30 meter resolution (GFSAD30AUNZCNMOCE). The monitoring of global cropland extent is critical for policymaking and provides important baseline data that are used in many agricultural cropland studies pertaining to water sustainability and food security. The GFSAD30AUNZCNMOCE data product uses the pixel-based supervised classifier Random Forest (RF) to retrieve cropland extent from a combination of Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) and Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) data. Each GFSAD30AUNZCNMOCE GeoTIFF file contains a cropland extent layer that defines areas of cropland, non-cropland, and water bodies over a 10⁰ by 10⁰ area.
