High resolution land cover maps for West Africa

Finding high resolution land cover maps for East Africa is relatively easy, as there a quite some numbers of product freely accessible online. However, for me West Africa remained quite a challenge. But only until today!

I came across a new set of high resolution land cover maps for selected West African countries done by OSS (Observatoire du Sahara et du Sahel). What a wonderful product!

They have created fantastic atlases for Senegal, Mauritania, Niger, Burkina Faso Chad and Mali. The one for Nigeria is on the way. Sad that the data is not directly accessible on their website, but the beautiful atlases are!

Have a look at the Burkina Faso one here!
