This lecture introduces 30m resolution global land cover map – Finer Resolution Observation and Monitoring – Global Land Cover
(FROM-GLC), its mapping philosophy and procedure based on Landsat and other Earth observation satellite data. Then introduces the follow up data products in the FROM family – FROM-Global Cropland, FROM – Water, FROM – Wetland, Afirca Land Cover, Chilean Land Cover，Major Cities, Regional Settlement. Some of the scientific applications based on these data products will also be presented. Lastly, we propose an international cooperation framework in support of national land cover mapping and change monitoring based on the procedural framework of FROM – GLC in collaboration with national experts from specific countries.
