Abstract:
The purpose of this data layer is to provide a digital layer showing areas of agriculture and agricultural chemical use in Wyoming. This layer was designed to be applied in the Wyoming Ground-Water Vulnerability Mapping Project. This dataset represents croplands of Wyoming as interpreted from 1:58,200-scale National High Altitude Program (NHAP) color infrared aerial photography. The photos, which were taken in 1980-1982, were interpreted and land use designations were hand-drawn onto plots produced at the same scale as the photos, using a light table. The plots were then digitized as polygons into ARC/INFO 7.0.2. Valid polygons include irrigated croplands, non-irrigated croplands, urban lands, golf-courses, and non-agricultural lands. Golf courses boundaries, which have changed recently, were later updated with 1994 NAPP photos.
