C-CAP US (United States) Coastal Land Cover Project: Massachusetts 1996 - 2001

This data set contains the 1995-era and 2000-era classifications of US Coast zone 65 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 41 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. Note: These data were reprojected from their native projection into North American Datum 1983 (NAD83) / Massachusetts State Plane coordinate system, Mainland Zone (Fipszone 2001) meters by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management on Oct. 12, 2006. All data classified as unchanged (e.g. Deciduous Forest 1996 to Deciduous Forest 2001) were grouped and converted to No Data.
