Description:
Abstract:
This data set consists of land derived from high resolution imagery and was analyzed according to the Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) protocol to determine land cover. This data set utilized 10 full or partial WorldView2 multispectral scenes and the 2005 high-resolution Guam C-CAP data set. The imagery and base classification were included in a multi-step semi-automated change detection process to extract land cover features in the 2011 imagery.
Purpose:
To improve the understanding of coastal uplands and wetlands, and their linkages with the distribution, abundance, and health of living marine resources.

Logical_Consistency_Report:
Tests for logical consistency indicate that all row and column positions in the selected latitude/longitude window contain data. Conversion and integration with vector files indicates that all positions are consistent with earth coordinates covering the same area. Attribute files are logically consistent.
Completeness_Report:
Data does not exist for all classes. There are no pixels representing class 9 (Deciduous Forest), 11 (Mixed Forest), 23 (Estuarine Aquatic Bed), 24 (Tundra), 25 (Perennial Ice/Snow), 26 (Dwarf Scrub - Alaska specific class), 27 (Sedge/Herbaceous), and 28 (Moss - Alaska specific). Developed classes have been altered to exclude the percentage breakdown of impervious surfaces as the breakdown is not appropriate for high resolution mapping (Developed High Intensity (2), Developed Medium Intensity (3), and Developed Low Intensity (4) are reduced to Impervious (Class 2)).

Process_Description:
This data set was created by Photo Science (www.photoscience.com). This version of the classification is the High Resolution Land Cover (2011-era) for the Territory of Guam.

This section outlines the classification procedure for the Guam High Resolution C-CAP. WorldView2 imagery used in producing this land cover product was also utilized in producing an associated impervious surfaces layer for the island. The mapping approach utilized a boundary summary, outlier change detection process and refinement procedure developed by Photo Science to leverage the 2005 high resolution C-CAP data set to create the 2011 high resolution C-CAP. A calibration visit was not conducted though NOAA had access to local resources for validation. Non impervious features were mapped using a 0.25 acre minimum mapping unit (MMU) and impervious features were mapped using a 0.1 acre MMU. Pre-processing steps: The WorldView2 mosaic utilized for this project was provided from Digital Globe as an orthorectified, georeferenced product. Multiple image primitives and indicies such as texture and NDVI were derived from the 8-band satellite data. The imagery was re-sampled from it's native 2m spatial resolution to 2.4m. The 2005 C-CAP classification and the base Quickbird imagery (used in the original mapping) were geometrically corrected to co-register to the WorldView2 data which has a higher geolocation accuracy.

Impervious Update: The 2005 impervious was over-laid with semi-transparency on the 2011 satellite data. It was panned at a scale of 1:3,500 and manually updated to match the 2011 data. Analysts zoomed in to a larger scale when necessary to perform edits. The product went through a QC procedure to ensure features were accurately captured.

Segmentation and Outlier Detection Process: The 2011 impervious was combined with the 2005 land cover to create a hybrid data set. Image segmentation, done in Trimble's eCognition software, was completed at multiple scales using the multispectral (2.4 m) imagery in order to group like spectral and textural objects within the imagery. For consistency, the associated hybrid data set was incorporated into the segmentation layer as a boundary delimiter. Segments contained image attributes and a label from the 2005 classification. These data were inputs to a custom multi-variate outlier detection tool that identified objects of potential change. These areas created the change mask.

Training Site Data: Training data was photo interpreted and collected within the change mask and was super-sampled from features outside of the mask. The referenced data set went through a QA/QC procedure to ensure it met accuracy standards.

Classification: Automated Classification - Image segments were classified using a decision tree classifier in See5 software based on the training data and image attributes. Automated Classification Refinement - Models are built to refine or reclassify land cover areas by utilizing the wealth of attribute information linked to each segment within eCognition. Classification Edits - As with any automated or semi-automated land cover classification there are often inconsistencies in the land cover map. The final step before map finalization was to remove inaccuracies through manual segment labeling as interpreted by an analyst. Map Finalization - Photo Science used independent reviewer’s comments to further refine the land cover map.
