Hi. Is there somewhere I can download landcover data for Africa? I have tried to download from ESA but there is an error when I try to load the downloaded file.
There are global land cover layers in the ArcGIS Living Atlas that might be helpful to you depending on the resolution you need. The World Land Cover ESA 2010 data is available at http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=7173340debc240a9b7ee5aec230e099c as a classified imagery service. If you do a search in ArcGIS Online on "world land cover" and limit the Status to "Authoritative" you'll see there are numerous other services that might be useful to you. You will need either a Public or Organizational account for ArcGIS Online to get to the details.
