The GLCF Mission is to encourage the use of remotely sensed imagery,
derived products and applications within a broad range of science
communities in a manner that improves comprehension of the nature and causes
of land cover change and its impact on the Earth.
The GLCF Goal is to provide free access to an integrated collection of
critical land cover and Earth science data through systems that are designed
to maximize user outreach and that promote development of novel tools for
ordering, visualizing and manipulating spatial data.
