Atlas of Malawi Land Cover and Land Cover Change 1990-2010

Year published: 10/10/2013

The Atlas of Malawi, land cover and land cover change (1990s-2010s) provides information on land cover resources, their distribution and changes over time, at national, regional and district levels. The administrative unit layer, as well as the water basin layer and ancillary datasets, was provided by the Land Resources and Development Department of the Ministry of Agriculture of Malawi. The land cover change database was prepared according to FAO’s Land and Water Division and Global Land Cover Network (GLCN) land cover change mapping methodology, underpinned by the use of FAO/ISO standards and the Land Cover Mapping Toolbox.
