Summary
Abstract: The Ontario Land Cover data base was produced by the Ontario Ministry of
Natural Resources from satellite remote sensing image data. The land cover
mapping classification was derived from digital, multispectral LANDSAT Thematic
Mapper image data recorded on a range of dates between 1986 and 1997, the
majority in the early 1990s. The forest cutovers and burns were updated ... View entire text

Quality Satellite image analysis was used to produce the Ontario land cover data
because the vast area to be mapped (1 million square kilometers) made the use
of more detailed mapping methods impractical. The resulting data base has not
been subjected to standard techniques of accuracy assessment, for two reasons.
First, the land cover classes are broad and ... View entire text
