Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Land cover reference data containing original point layer, relocated point layer to the fields and field polygons. Information includes date of acquisition, geolocation, photograph web address, crop type, phenological stage, crop height, additional notes of field. The objective was to collect data for training and validation of optical and radar remote sensing-based land cover monitoring models. The ground reference data was acquired through the freely available mobile app EpiCollect, developed at Imperial College London. The work has been carried out within the framework of the joint BE-Basic FAPESP project: 2013/50943-9
