Classification of High Spatial Resolution, Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Imagery of the Little Miami River Watershed in Southwest Ohio, USA (Final)
The document and associated land use/land cover (LULC) coverage, entitled Classification of High Spatial Resolution, Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Imagery of the Little Miami River Watershed in Southwest Ohio, USA, is the result of a collaborative effort among an interdisciplinary team of scientists with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (U.S. EPA's) Office of Research and Development in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The land use/land cover classification is derived from 82 flight lines of Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) hyperspectral imagery acquired from July 24 through August 9, 2002 via fixed-wing aircraft. Categories within this classification include: water (both lentic and lotic), forest, corn, soybeans, wheat, dry herbaceous vegetation, grass, urban barren, rural barren, and urban/built. These categories may be combined and compared to historical and coarser spatial resolution LULC datasets available for this same geographic area (e.g., the National Land Cover Dataset or NLCD circa 1990s, and the State of Ohio Land Cover 1994).
