Service Description: The Forest Type 2018 status layer at 10m spatial resolution is mainly based on the primary status layer Dominant Leaf Type 2018, which was produced by a hierarchical spatio-temporal classification of time features derived from Sentinel-2A+B time series (Level-2A data) using a Random Forest (RF) classifier with 500 trees. The default time window ranges from 01-03-2018 to 31-10-2018 and was adapted to regional conditions where needed. In total, 147 statistical time features have been calculated using more than 500,000 samples, automatically collected from the LUCAS 2018 database and various CLMS products plus additional manual sampling. First, a binary Tree Cover Mask (TCM) with 2 classes (all non-tree covered areas / tree cover) has been generated. Various post-processing steps have been applied in order to improve the quality of the mask (e.g. correction of omission errors caused by the topographic overcorrection within the native Sentinel-2 Level-2A input data). Subsequently, the dominant leaf type has been separately classified within the confines of the Tree Cover Mask. In order to generate a forest type product following the FAO forest definition, a minimum mapping unit of 0.5 ha has been applied to the initial Tree Cover Mask considering a 10% tree cover density threshold and with all pixels in agricultural and urban context (as provided by the FADSL) removed. Subsequently, filtered non-forest patches smaller the MMU have been filled with the neighbouring leaf type information using a 9x9 circle filter. In case of tree covered pixels smaller 10% TCD being present in those non-forest patches, the original Dominant Leaf Type information is kept. National FTY products are derived through reprojection and might show a broken MMU.
