This is a shape file of mangrove cover of Mozambique coast derived from Landsat 8. Mangroves forests cover map was created through a supervised digital image classification techniques. The data are available at 30-m spatial resolution. A cover 3387.10 square kilometer was realized for Mozambique coastline.

This data has been developed by RCMRD SERVIR Eastern & Southern Africa.

Data Quality
The accuracy assessment results obtained for Mozambique Landsat 8 Overall Accuracy = 84%, KHAT Statistic/Cohen's - Coefficient = 0.64 Products were developed using LandSat 7 ETM Plus and LandSat 8 OLI data, a supervised classification method was used. It involves the creation of training sites and then the use maximum likelihood classification method to develop the land cover products.Post classification procedures such as filtering, pixel/cell editing are used to refine the classification of the final products. Accuracy assessment was conducted using randomly generated actual field data and point interpretation from LandSat imagery. Used indices for assessing the map accuracy were the Overall accuracy and the KHAT statistics/Cohen's coefficient.
