Abstract: The North Carolina Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, in cooperation with the NC Department of Transportation and United States Environmental Protection Agency Region IV Wetlands Division, contracted Earth Satellite Corporation (EarthSat) of Rockville, Maryland to generate comprehensive land cover data for the entire state of North Carolina. EarthSat was awarded the base/municipal area deduct contract in response to request for proposal (RFP) number 503768, issued 12 July 1995. This data is the ERDAS raster file of filtered, classified, statewide land cover used to create the vectorized data.
Purpose: These data were created to assist governmental agencies and others in making resource management decisions through the use of a geographic information system (GIS).
Supplemental Information: Twenty-two TM scenes were acquired from EOSAT Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and used by EarthSat to produce land cover classification. See full documentation for this data layer in report, "Comprehensive Land Cover Mapping for the State of North Carolina: Final Report," March 1997, Rockville, Maryland: Earth Satellite Corporation.
