This document summarizes the materials and methods used to create a series of maps of irrigated areas of the world using remote sensing approaches. These maps are complementary to existing statistics (FAO-Aquastat) and the GISderived maps (FAO/University of Frankfurt Global irrigated area map). The document also provides details of how the estimates of global irrigated areas in one main season (net) and more than one season (intensity or annualized) were derived.
