Sagavanirktok Quadrangle, Alaska - Vegetation and Land Cover; USGSEntry ID: EARTH_LAND_USGS_Sagavanirktok
Abstract: This digital data set describes vegetation and land cover for the Sagavanirktok River quadrangle, Alaska. It's derived from analysis of one Landsat MSS scene. Data in 15 map categories are stored as 50-meter UTM referenced pixels. Data covers quadrangle directly south of the Beechey Point vegetation and land cover data set. Map units will be aligned to agree with those published for the Beechey Point quadrangle. Multi-temporal data analysis and Detrended correlation analysis are employed. The file is too large to remain online. It is stored on magnetic tape at Moffett Field, CA.
