I am trying to use my own land cover data in wrf which is ESA land cover products.

I followed all the steps in this website and could convert them to wps format. ( and geogrid.exe finishes successfully. But when I check the output my land cover domain is upside down and goes to the opposite side of my domain.
I also tried write_geogrid.c and got the same results.

Any help will be appreciated.
