Data Management Plan
DMP Template v2.0.1 (2015-01-01)Please provide the following information, and submit to the NOAA DM Plan Repository.
Reference to Master DM Plan (if applicable)
As stated in Section IV, Requirement 1.3, DM Plans may be hierarchical. If this DM Plan inherits provisions from a higher-level DM Plan already submitted to the Repository, then this more-specific Plan only needs to provide information that differs from what was provided in the Master DM Plan.
1. General Description of Data to be Managed
This data set consists of land derived from scanned black and white aerial photographs and was analyzed according to the Coastal Change Analysis Program (C-CAP) protocol to determine land cover. This data set utilized 17 full historic scenes that were processed to detect C-CAP land cover features on Rota, CNMI.
Notes: Only a maximum of 4000 characters will be included.
Notes: Data collection is considered ongoing if a time frame of type "Continuous" exists.
Notes: All time frames from all extent groups are included.
Notes: All geographic areas from all extent groups are included.
(e.g., digital numeric data, imagery, photographs, video, audio, database, tabular data, etc.)
(e.g., satellite, airplane, unmanned aerial system, radar, weather station, moored buoy, research vessel, autonomous underwater vehicle, animal tagging, manual surveys, enforcement activities, numerical model, etc.)

- 2010-08-04 00:00:00 - This dataset was created by Sanborn (www.sanborn.com). This version of the classification is the High Resolution Land Cover (1946-era) for the Island of Rota , CNMI. This section outlines the classification procedure for the Island of Rota , CNMI High Resolution C-CAP. Scanned historic black-and-white images from 1946 and 1949 were use in a semi-automated methodology to detect change (retroactive) from 2005 QuickBird imagery. The mapping approach used image segments derived from the mosaicked 1946 imagery and the 2005 land cover classification which were analyzed and categorized as changed/not changed. Once changes were identified, they were modeled into the 2005 classification to create the 1946 classification. Pervious features were mapped using a 0.5 acre minimum mapping unit (MMU), excepting some small features of historic interest. Pre-processing steps: The historic 1946 and 1949 imagery was provided as scanned black-and-white unmosaicked tiffs. The tiffs were georectified using the 2005 QuickBird imagery as reference and subsequently mosaicked. Due to parallax problems with the high relief on the island, isolated shifts remained in the completed mosaics, which were accounted for in the subsequent steps. Classification: Segmentation - Image segmentation was completed at multiple scales using the 1946 mosaic, a texture band derived from the mosaic, and the 2005 land cover classification as a boundary layer. The segments were created using the MMU of 0.5 acre as an approximate minimum size threshold. Automated Classification - Image segments were classified using a decision tree classifier in See5 software into forested and non-forested categories only, using training data collected from the 1946 imagery and analyst interpretation. The result was then compared to and differenced with the 2005 land cover classification to provide a preliminary change mask. This was intended only as a broad guide to landscape changes Manual Change Interpretation and Classification - Analysts, using the preliminary change mask, scanned the imagery (both 1946 and 2005) for changes in the land cover. These changes were put into the change mask, with the segment often serving as land cover change boundaries. These boundaries were also manually changed where necessary. Those impervious surfaces that existed in 1946 but not in 2005 were edited in using raster editing methods. Once complete, the 1946 change mask was compared to/differenced with the 2005 classification to drop out any unchanged pixels. This left only those pixels and areas changed between 1946 and 2005. The change pixels were modeled into the 2005 classification to create the 1946 land cover classification. Map Finalization - Sanborn used independent reviewer's comments to further refine the land cover map. Attributes for this product are as follows: 0 Background 1 Unclassified 2 Impervious 3 4 5 Developed, Open Space 6 Cultivated Crops 7 Pasture/Hay 8 Grassland/Herbaceous 9 Deciduous Forest 10 Evergreen Forest 11 Mixed Forest 12 Scrub/Shrub 13 Palustrine Forested Wetland 14 Palustrine Scrub/Shrub Wetland 15 Palustrine Emergent Wetland 16 Estuarine Forested Wetland 17 Estuarine Scrub/Shrub Wetland 18 Estuarine Emergent Wetland 19 Unconsolidated Shore 20 Bare Land 21 Open Water 22 Palustrine Acquatic Bed

7. Data Access
NAO 212-15 states that access to environmental data may only be restricted when distribution is explicitly limited by law, regulation, policy (such as those applicable to personally identifiable information or protected critical infrastructure information or proprietary trade information) or by security requirements. The EDMC Data Access Procedural Directive contains specific guidance, recommends the use of open-standard, interoperable, non-proprietary web services, provides information about resources and tools to enable data access, and includes a Waiver to be submitted to justify any approach other than full, unrestricted public access.
