MODIS Fractional Cover Metrics

Time-period metrics derived from the MODIS NBAR Fractional Cover dataset (modis/fractionalcover-clw) by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES).

Two versions of the dataset are available, v2.1 and v2.2, which correspond to the two versions of the MODIS NBAR Fractional Cover dataset.
