Summary
Abstract: The data set on this CD-ROM shows changes in land cover for the
Chesapeake Bay region over the 5-year interval from 1984 to 1988-89. The
data set was produced through a multi-year effort that focused on the
Chesapeake Bay as a prototype for the Coastal Change Analysis Program
(C-CAP) of the NOAA Coastal Ocean Program's Estuarine Habitat Studies
Program. The CD-ROM was produced cooperatively by the National Marine
Fisheries Service, the National Geophysical Data Center, and the
National Oceanographic Data Center.

The Chesapeake Bay Land Classification Data Set is based on an analysis
of Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) scenes of the Chesapeake Bay region.
This CD-ROM contains three data sets: 1. Analysis of four Landsat
Thematic Mapper scenes from 1984. 2. Analysis of four Landsat Thematic
Mapper scenes from 1988-89 for the same area, and 3. Analysis of the
resulting change between 1984 and 1988-89. The land cover analyses
distinguish 14 land cover classes. The change analysis resulted in 81
classes.

The data are in a binary unblocked format. A record equals one row of
pixels, and the first data value is in the upper left-hand corner of the
image. The CD-ROM includes GeoVu display software developed by the
National Geophysical Data Center.

NOTE: Advanced programming skills are strongly recommended for users of
this CD-ROM product.
