Original legends
The Legend Module of LCCS allows users to take land cover classes and store them in a hierarchical structure that groups the classes according to the main land cover type. This page lists legends (.xls) and help files (.ppt) generated using LCCS 2 software. For more info on legends, please refer to the LCSS manual.

Before starting to download, please read carefully the explanation below.

Most of the legends have been produced through the Africover programme or other initiatives. The downloadable files are zip archives containing MS Excel files named by country (i.e. Burundi) or by project title (i.e. GLC 2000).

In particular, in each zip archive there are three files:
  1. A descriptive file called "'country name' Legend Overview". It only provides a schematic description of the legend, useful to introduce the legend and print it.
  2. A LCCS file called "'country name' Legend Import": this is the file needed to import the legend into the LCCS software, in the Legend Module area (see functions in LCCS Modules - Legend Module)
  3. A LCCS file called "'country name' Legend Translator": this is the file needed to import the legend into the LCCS software, in the Translator Module area (see functions in LCCS Modules - Translator Module). These files will be soon available.
