Version 1.1 of a thematic grid of Land Use Systems (LUS) and its attributes for Sub-Saharan Africa with a spatial resolution
of 5 arc minutes or 0.083333 decimal degrees. This dataset is developed in the framework of the LADA project (Land degradation
Assessment in Drylands) by the Land Tenure and Management Unit of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United
Nations and is copyright of FAO/UNEP GEF. The LUS map implementation is based on a innovative methodology combining more
than 10 global datasets.
Due to the map generation method, the quality of the map can never be uniform. The overall quality of the map depends heavily
on the individual quality of the data for the different countries.
