SENEGAL LAND COVER MAPPING REPORT BY FAO

The land cover legend of Senegal, consisting of 55 classes, was set up using the F.A.O. LCCS methodology. The analysis was based on a set of corrected Landsat ETM images dated 2005. To affine the interpretation, a set of aerial photos donated by USGS and the high resolution images of Google Earth have been used. The mapping scale used for the Land Cover visual photointerpretation was 1:100.000. Senegalese full resolution Land Cover dataset consists of 23,922 polygons, covering an area of 19,659 thousands ha. During the fieldworks carried out all across the country, 170 field forms have been compiled; moreover, about 700 field extra observations (GPS coordinates, a photo and a short description/code for each point) incremented the field work data which have been afterwards hot-linked in an interactive database
