Description:
Abstract:
Land cover data for the Southern Lower Peninsula of Michigan derived from classification of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery. Image dates between 1997-2000 were used to identify land cover classes. The data is stored in a raster format with a cell resolution of 30 meters. Data is available in Erdas Imagine 8.5 image format. Data is in the Michigan GeoRef coordinate system.
Purpose:
The goals of the Statewide Coarse Resolution Map are to produce a statewide land cover map and a dataset which can serve multiple functions. The dataset can be used in conjunction with statewide inventory data to produce a statewide assessment of forest resources. The dataset can also aid management in an ecosystem context and be used for planning scenarios at the ecosystem level and statewide assessment of natural resources and wildlife habitat. The Statewide Coarse Resolution Map can aid in assessment of resources and also in the quality control of high resolution land cover mapping.
