This dataset is the third (circa 2013) in a series of three 1-kilometer land use land cover (LULC) time-periods datasets (1975, 2000, and 2013) aids in monitoring change in West Africa’s land resources. To monitor and map these changes, a 26 general LULC class system was used. The classification system that was developed was primarily inspired by the “Yangambi Classification” (Trochain, 1957). This fairly broad class system for LULC was used because the classes can be readily identified on Landsat satellite imagery. A visual photo-interpretation approach was used to identify and map the LULC classes represented on Landsat images. The Rapid Land Cover Mapper (RLCM) was used to facilitate the photo-interpretation...

The U.S. Virgin Islands 2007 land cover, created as part of the USVIGAP analysis project supported by the USGS, is a forty-nine class land cover classification. The USVIGAP land cover is based primarily on the unsupervised classification of five Earth Observing 1 (EO-1) Advanced Land Imager (ALI) scenes acquired in 2007. The ALI scenes were processed, segmented into geoclimatic zones and classified individually. ASTER and Landsat 7 ETM+ imagery from 2008 and 2009 were used to complete areas of no data resulting from cloud and cloud shadow in the initial ALI classification. The land cover was created through the use of the spectral information derived from the satellite imagery and ancillary data such as geology,...
The National Land Cover Database products are created through a cooperative project conducted by the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) Consortium. The MRLC Consortium is a partnership of federal agencies (www.mrlc.gov), consisting of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), the National Park Service (NPS), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). The success of NLCD over nearly two decades is credited to the continuing collaborative...

These data represent land cover and land use for the Crown of the Continent Ecosystem. The data are a compilation from multiple sources [Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) Consortium, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), and the Canadian Forest Service (CFS)], Canadian data are circa 2000, US are circa 2001. VALUE: 0 = NoData; 20 = Water; 30 = Barren; 31 = Ice/Snow; 34 = Developed; 50 = Scrub/Shrub; 80 = Wetland; 110 = Grassland; 120 = Agriculture; 210 = Coniferous; 220 = Deciduous; 230 = Mixed. This dataset was published in November 2010. The dataset was updated in 2014 to fix several no-data pixels along the US-Canada border. This dataset was developed by the Crown Managers Partnership, as part of...

This dataset is the second (2013) of two 500-meter land use land cover (LULC) time-periods datasets (2000, and 2013) aids in monitoring change in West Africa’s land resources. To monitor and map these changes, a 26 general LULC class system was used. The classification system that was developed was primarily inspired by the “Yangambi Classification” (Trochain, 1957). This fairly broad class system for LULC was used because the classes can be readily identified on Landsat satellite imagery. A visual photo-interpretation approach was used to identify and map the LULC classes represented on Landsat images.

The Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GPLCC, http://www.greatplainslcc.org/) is a partnership that provides applied science and decision support tools to assist natural resource managers conserve plants, fish and wildlife in the mid- and short-grass prairie of the southern Great Plains. It is part of a national network of public-private partnerships — known as Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs, http://www.fws.gov/science/shc/lcc.html) — that work collaboratively across jurisdictions and political boundaries to leverage resources and share science capacity. The Great Plains LCC identifies science priorities for the region and helps foster science that addresses these priorities to support wildlife...

The Puerto Rico 2000 land cover, created as part of the Puerto Rico GAP Analysis project supported by the USGS, is a seventy-class land cover classification. The PRGAP land cover is based primarily on the unsupervised classification of eighteen Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper + (ETM+) scenes acquired from 1999 - 2003. The Landsat 7 scenes were separated into wet and dry season imagery, mosaiced, and segmented based on geo-climatic zones. The land cover was created through the use of the spectral information derived from the satellite imagery and ancillary data such as geology, topography, hydrology and land use history. The Puerto Rico GAP 2000 land cover product represents the first time a 15 meter spatial resolution...
