Abstract: This data set consists of three Landsat Thematic Mapper scenes which
were analyzed according to the Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) protocol
to determine land cover and a subsequent change detection. The data were field
validated and mosaicked to produce a land cover inventory for Northern Maine.
If you wish to create an attribute table to identify the different land cover
