CCI-LC User Tool


Dedicated user tool for allowing fitting land cover products to climate models by sub-setting, projection resampling re-projecting and re-sampling and by converting land cover classes into Plant Functional Types according to default or
user-defined cross-walking tables.


  • Ranking of LC class by fractional area in target cell; first n entries of sorted list are written to n bands (n is user parameter, called majority classes),
  • Fractional area of each LC class,
  • Fractional area of each PFT.

Note that the current version of the user tool (v3.3) is not working with the CCI-LC Water Bodies product yet. This will be included in the next user tool version and this is reason why it can still be fine tuned.
