Series name: Land Cover, Land Use

Description:
Abstract:
Land cover data for the Lower Peninsula of Michigan derived from classification of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) magery. Image dates between 1997-2001 were used to identify land cover classes. Imagery from three seasons was used in the classification: Spring (Leaf-off), Summer, and Fall (Senescence). Data is available in Erdas Imagine image format. Data is in the Michigan GeoRef coordinate system.
This dataset was filtered using a 3x3 majority kernel filter in each of the following land cover classes: Upland Forest, Lowland Forest, Upland Openland, Open Wetland.

Purpose:
The goals of the Statewide Coarse Resolution Map are to produce a land cover map and a dataset which can serve multiple functions. The dataset can be used in conjunction with statewide inventory data to produce an 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 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.
Filtering of the data was performed to generalize the map and to make it more interpretable on a forest-stand level
