Coastal Cover Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) Great Lakes 1996-era and 2001-era land cover change analysis (NODC Accession 0042437)

This data set contains the 1996-era and 2001-era classifications of Great lakes and can be used to analyze change. This imagery was collected as part of the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics program in a multi-agency effort to provide baseline multi-scale environmental characteristics and to monitor environmental change. This data set utilized 35 (1996-era) and 74 (2001-era) full or partial Landsat 5 and 7 scenes which were analyzed according to the Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) protocol to determine land cover.

Supplemental Information
The metadata in this record is for the Great Lakes, which includes parts of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

The Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) is a nationally standardized database of land cover and land change information, developed using remotely sensed imagery, for the coastal regions of the U.S. C-CAP products inventory coastal intertidal areas, wetlands, and adjacent uplands with the goal of monitoring these habitats by updating the land cover maps every five years.

The development of standardized, regional land cover information enables managers to coordinate the planning of shared resources, facilitating an ecosystem approach to environmental issues that transcends local and state regulatory boundaries. C-CAP has recently released two time periods of mapping for all of the Conterminous United States (CONUS), and is now working to update these products.
