PROCEDURE FOR MERGING LAND COVER/USE DATA FROM LANDSAT, AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY, AND MAP SOURCES: COMPATIBILITY, ACCURACY AND COST

Regional planning agencies are currently expressing a need for detailed land cover/use information to effectively meet the requirements of various federal programs. Individual data sources have advantages and limitations in fulfilling this need, both in terms of time/cost and technological capability. A methodology has been developed to merge land cover/use data from LANDSAT, aerial photography and map sources to maximize the effective use of a variety of data sources in the provision of an integrated information system for regional analysis.
