A proposed periodic national inventory of land use land cover change


Schreuder, Hans T.; Snook, Paul W.; Czaplewski, Raymond L.; Catts, Glenn P. 1986. A proposed periodic national inventory of land use land cover change. In: ASPRS Technical Papers. 1986 ASPRS-ASCM Fall Convention; September 28-October 3; Anchorage, AK. Falls Church, VA: American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. p. 255-264.

Three alternatives using digital thematic mapper (TM), analog TM, and a combination of either digital or analog TM data with low altitude photography are discussed for level I and level II land use/land cover classes for a proposed national inventory. Digital TM data should prove satisfactory for estimating acreage in level I classes, although estimates of precision may be unreliable. Either the digital or the analog TH combined with low-altitude photography (LAP) are expected to yield satisfactory estimates for most level I and level II classes. Reliable estimates of precision can be obtained for those classes where LAP is "truth".

Keywords: inventory, land use, land cover, thematic mapper (TM)
