Data Quality

Accuracy:

No accuracy was determined for this land cover data set.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

< 10.7 meters CE90

Vertical Positional Accuracy:

There was no terrain correction in the geo-referencing procedure.

Completeness Report:

Data does not exist for all classes.

There are no pixels representing class 11 (Mixed Forest), 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).

Conceptual Consistency:

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.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 628454
Description:

This data set was created by Dewberry (www.dewberry.com). This version of the classification is the High Resolution Land Cover (2010-era) for the Island of Puerto Rico.

This section outlines the classification procedure for the Puerto Rico High Resolution C-CAP. The color-infrared imagery used in producing this land cover product was also utilized in producing an associated impervious surfaces layer for the island. Non impervious features were mapped using a 0.25 acre minimum mapping unit (MMU) and impervious features were mapped using a 0.1 acre MMU.

Image Preparation: The aerial imagery was supplied to Dewberry by the USACE. Due to quality issues during acquisition, the USACE had to perform additional post processing on the imagery to make it suitable for land cover mapping. Dewberry received the imagery on December 17, 2012 and performed a QA review to inspect and document voids, clouds/smoke cover, inconstant radiometry, shadows, and artifacts. Individual image tiles were merged into a single mosaic and re-sampled from the native 1-foot spatial resolution to 2-m.

Automated Land Cover Classification: An Object Based Image Analysis (OBIA) approach was used to automate the preliminary land cover results. This approach uses eCognition software that groups pixels that share similar spectral properties based on the user's defined parameters and organizes these groups into polygons through a process called segmentation. Once the aerial imagery was segmented into image objects the land cover classification was performed using thresholding, thematic, and supervised classification processes in eCognition.

Classification Review: Once various stages of the automated land cover classification processing were completed, the resulting land cover was edited manually by Dewberry's aerial photointerpreters using ERDAS Imagine software. The land cover was reviewed for geometry and classification errors and corrected using ERDAS' raster editing tools.

Map Finalization: Dewberry used independent reviewer's comments to further refine the land cover map.
