Delaware River Basin High-Resolution Land Cover

High-resolution land cover dataset for the Delaware River Basin developed by the UVM Spatial Analysis Lab. The primary data sources were 2006-2008 leaf-off LiDAR data, 2005-2008 leaf-off orthoimagery, and 2013 leaf-on orthoimagery. Ancillary data sources such as LiDAR-derived breaklines for roads and hydrology were also used to augment the land-cover mapping. Land cover class assignment was done using a rule-based expert system embedded within an object-based framework. Land cover classes include: Land cover class 0 - Background 1 - Water 2 - Emergent Wetlands 3 - Tree Canopy 4 - Scrub/Shrub 5 - Low Vegetation 6 - Barren 7 - Structures 8 - Other Impervious Surfaces 9 - Roads 10 - Tree Canopy over Structures 11 - Tree Canopy over Other Impervious Surfaces 12 - Tree Canopy over Roads
