Description:
Abstract:
This data set consists of land cover 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 38 three-band ADS40 scenes. These full scenes were not sufficient to replace cloud obscured areas within the base imagery. Additional imagery was used for classifying obsucred areas. All scenes were processed to detect C-CAP land cover features on St Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.
Purpose:
To create a baseline inventory of land cover features which can be utilized by state and local resource managers.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report: No report is currently available.
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 classes 11 (Mixed Forest), 22 (Palustrine Aquatic Bed), 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 dataset was created by Sanborn (www.sanborn.com).This version of the classification is the High Resolution Land Cover (2007-era) for the Island of St Croix, United States Virgin Islands.This section outlines the classification procedure for St Croix, United States Virgin Islands High Resolution C-CAP. ADS40 imagery and the 2002-era C-CAP classification were used in producing this land cover product. The mapping approach utilized a boundary summary and refinement procedure developed by Sanborn to leverage the 2002-era classification. A calibration visit was conducted and training data was collected for classification. Non impervious features were mapped using a 0.5 acre minimum mapping unit (MMU).Pre-processing steps:The ADS40 was provided to Sanborn as a geo-referenced product. Sanborn perfomed a quality control on the imagery to check for pixel dropouts and other image issues. Individual image tiles werecombined to create a single mosaic for the entire island. In conjunction with the ADS40 mosaic, Sanborn used Quickbird collected from 2002-2005 and LiDAR collected in 2007 for the island.Field-Collected Data:Training data was collected in the field between May 31th and June 5th, 2009. Land cover observations were recorded by analysts. The referenced dataset went through a QA/QC procedure to ensure it met accuracy standards.Classification:Segmentation - Image segmentation 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 impervious data set was incorporated into the segmentation layer as a boundary delimiter. Segments can share boundaries of an impervious surface,but can never overlap an impervious surface.Automated Classification - Logical rulesets and thresholding based on the spectral properties of the imagery, and ancillary data, and the early date classification were used to generate a mask of potential change. The changemask was incorporated into the early date classification to create the 2007 classification.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 Definiens.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 - Sanborn used independent reviewer's comments to further refine the land cover map.Attributes for this product are as follows:0 Background1 Unclassified2 Impervious345 Developed, Open Space6 Cultivated Crops7 Pasture/Hay8 Grassland/Herbaceous9 Deciduous Forest10 Evergreen Forest11 Mixed Forest12 Scrub/Shrub13 Palustrine Forested Wetland14 Palustrine Scrub/Shrub Wetland15 Palustrine Emergent Wetland16 Estuarine Forested Wetland17 Estuarine Scrub/Shrub Wetland18 Estuarine Emergent Wetland19 Unconsolidated Shore20 Bare Land21 Open Water22 Palustrine Aquatic Bed23 Estuarine Aquatic Bed24 Tundra25 Snow/Ice
