We developed a map of cropland and grassland allocation for Switzerland based on several indices dominantly derived from Sentinel-2 satellite imagery captured over multiple growing seasons. The classification model was trained based on parcel-based data derived from landholder reporting. The mapping was conducted on Google Earth Engine platform using random forest classifier. Areas of high vegetation, shrubland, sealed surface and non-vegetated areas were masked out from the country-wide map. The resulting map has high accuracy in lowlands as well as mountainous areas.
