Project: RUSSIAN LAND COVERProject: RUSSIAN LAND COVER
The Russian Land Cover database consists of land use and land cover satellite-based map products of Russia and of the Former Soviet Union. The GIS products included provide scientists and resource managers with the information needed in the management, characterization, and measurement of Russian forest resources as well as the land use and land cover data needed for Russian land management.
Data Set: RLC Vegetative Cover of the Former Soviet Union, 1990Data Set: RLC Vegetative Cover of the Former Soviet Union, 1990
This dataset is a 1:4 million scale vegetation map for the land area of the Former Soviet Union. Three hundred seventy-three cover classes are distinguished, of which nearly 145 are forest cover-related classes.
