I download data from http://land.copernicus.eu/global/products/lai?qt-lai_characteristics=5 and when I visualize it in ArcGIS I set epsg 3857, but scale is wrong and measure show pixel with resolution 1x1m.

Can you tell me the correct system for this data?

    It's listed under the technical tab for both the 300m and 1km versions. WGS84, AKA EPSG::4326.

As mentioned in the above comment, it is clearly defined in the Technical Characterisitics as WGS84:

Projection and grid:

The product is displayed in a regular latitude/longitude grid (plate carrée) with the ellipsoïd WGS 1984 (Terrestrial radius=6378km). The resolution of the grid is 1/112°. The reference is the centre of the pixel. It means that the longitude of the upper left corner of the pixel is (pixel_longitude – angular_resolution/2.)

  • yes i know, but it is not resolve my problem. I need this raster project under my data but i do not know
