I'm looking for one cohesive dataset with modeled land use or land cover for present (or recent past), and future (2100, preferably broken down by ssp) climate scenarios across Canada, USA, and Mexico. The goal is to include these layers in species distribution models fit to "present" and projected future conditions.

Preferred source

Ideally, this dataset would be available on Earth Engine, but really any accessibility format is fine.


Any license with open access/free use for research would be fine.


Any raster format is fine. Dataset should be categorical and include an associated key for explaining categories/cell values.


Government or peer-reviewed source preferred.

(Sort of) non-answer

The recent GCAM-Demeter product is a pretty good model of what I'm looking for. I'm having problems downloading that (a separate issue), but I am interested in knowing what alternative data are available.
