This high-resolution, 10-m wetland inventory map of Canada covers an approximate area of one billion hectares and is generated using multi-year (2016-2018) and multi-source (Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2) satellite imagery (~65k images). The whole country is classified with an overall accuracy approaching 80%. The resulting nationwide wetland inventory map illustrates that 19% of Canada’s land area is covered by wetlands, most of which are peatlands located predominantly in northern ecozones.
