Northern Maine Land Cover Change Analysis 1985 - 1992
Entry ID: Northern_Maine_Land_Cover_Change_Analysis_1985_1992

Abstract: This data set consists of portions of three Landsat Thematic Mapper
scenes which were analyzed according to the Coastal Change Analysis Program
(C-CAP) protocol to determine land cover analysis and a subsequent change
detection analysis. 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 change classifications, an easy
reference table is available under the PROCESS DESCRIPTION section.

Purpose: To improve the understanding of coastal uplands and wetlands, and
their linkages with the distribution, abundance, and health of living marine
