I was looking for some publicly available ground data classification datasets, specifically, locations in e.g. latitude/longitude with a description of the land cover/land use, and a reference e.g. Landsat image. The aim of this is to have a sample classification dataset with which to try out different classification algorithms.
And yes, I could do this by hand, selecting random pixels from a landcover dataset, but I'd like to at least have some sort of ground truth to compare with and I'd rather use some freely available data that people have used for other things.
