Senegal is a country in West Africa. Senegal is bordered by Mauritania in the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast, and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest. Senegal nearly surrounds The Gambia, a country occupying a narrow sliver of land along the banks of the Gambia River, which separates Senegal's southern region of Casamance from the rest of the country. Senegal also shares a maritime border with Cape Verde. Senegal's economic and political capital is Dakar. Long considered one of Africa's model democracies, the western African nation of Senegal has a tradition of stable governments and civilian rule. The country's stability has allowed it to send peacekeeping troops to DR Congo, Liberia and Kosovo.

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
