Abstract:
The forest cover map, produced at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) EROS Data Center (EDC), has five classes: closed forest, open or fragmented forest, other wooded land, other land cover, and water. The classes were delineated based on circa 1995 monthly AVHRR composite images processed using a hybrid maximum-NDVI and minimum-red compositing technique. Grid Legend: 0=Ocean, 1=Closed Forest, 2=Open or Fragmented Forest, 3=Other Wooded Land, 4=Other Land Cover, 5=Water.
