Status: Closed
The C6 land cover product MCD12Q1, includes areas incorrectly mapped as water in year 2017, when compared to previous years. This occurs in North, Central and South America and to some degree in other continents. The images below show the Land Cover Type 2 and 1 classification for C6 2016 and 2017 for spatial subsets of two northern tiles. In each example of the different land classifications, the 2017 classification incorrectly shows more inland water than in year 2016. This issues only impacts year 2017 and was found to be caused by the staging of an incorrect number of inputs for MCD12Q1. The solution to fix this issue is currently being tested and the revised product should be available soon.

***** UPDATE: 07.31.19 ******: The product has been fixed and regenerated for year 2017.
