Twin Cities Metro Hybrid Landcover 2000 (Raster)

This page last updated: 2006-08-09 09:16:44.0
Metadata created using Minnesota Geographic Metadata Guidelines


Metadata Summary

Originator MN DNR Central Region GIS
Abstract The Hybrid Landcover is an attempt to clean up the University of Minnesota Remote Sensing Lab's 2000 LandSat Land Cover for the Twin Cities 7-county metropolitan area. The most difficult areas for the satellite to identify are transitional areas between two cover types. Layers such as the Metropolitan Council's Land Use 2000, National Wetlands Inventory, County Biological Survey, TLG Roads, MLCCS Grasslands polygons, GAP 2000, DNR Parks boundaries were referenced to clarify and correct classifications of cover type.
Use Tips This is the best complete coverage land cover data currently available for the seven county metropolitan area. It could be useful for regional scale analysis for natural resource protection and/or land use planning.

Use Tips This is the best complete coverage land cover data currently available for the seven county metropolitan area. It could be useful for regional scale analysis for natural resource protection and/or land use planning.
Purpose The data was created to help make regional scale land use decisions, especially as it relates to balancing development and natural resource protection.
