Refuge. The data set contains land cover classifications derived from Landsat
MSS data and elevation, slope and aspect data derived from DEM data. Data can
be keyed on a U.S. Geological Survey 1:250,000 quadrangle basis. Spatial
referencing is by 50 meter grid cells. Data source is Landsat MSS data and
Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data. The data set contains 70 records.
