The dataset contains a cropland percent coverage map for Africa created through the combination of five existing land cover products: GLC-2000, MODIS Land Cover, GlobCover, MODIS Crop Likelihood and AfriCover. A synergy map was created in which the products are ranked by experts, which reflects the likelihood or probability that a given pixel is cropland. The cropland map was calibrated with national and sub-national crop statistics using a novel approach. Preliminary validation of the map...
